Open-source video recorder adds full HD support

If you’re an enthusiastic home PC builder and a fan of Star Trek – and, to be fair, if you’re the first, you’re probably the second as well – it’s an exciting day, as developer Klaus Schmidinger has released a new version of his open-source video disk recorder software.

The VDR software, essentially, is a Linux-based replacement for the code running on the cable box your local service provider installed when you moved in. It’s free and open-source, and can be downloaded from Schmidinger’s website.
