I still have problems recording multiple audio streams with the DVB
code, and the DVB driver hasn't been modified to support analog
recording. So I'm still maintaining the hdtvrecorder at least until
those two issues are addressed.
I'm planning to look at the audio problem at some point as that is
the only thing really preventing me from using the DVB drivers, and
my understanding is that someone is looking making the DVB driver
function along with the analog driver.
As for supporting sub-channels on the hdtvrecorder without the "_"
character, that should be 2 liner, I just haven't gotten around
to it yet.
