I`m sorry that I have only found one guy in Sizila with XP and a DVB-S tool 
that can record only on audio PID and a modem conection ;(
So it is still urgent to find someones support.

If it will be a small success or desaster about software patents on the voting 
on wednesday, the discussion inside of the European Parlament tomorrow will 
be very interesting to make the right next lobbing stepps. I understand that 
request for recordings on your list are not nice - but I know now other help.

You would help all these people who was active agains software patents the 
last month and weeks very much, when you would record this. This material is 
speacial, becaus it is free to use it like we like and translated in 11 

So please help - even when you have no fast internet connection, you are 
welcome to record it, burn it on CD and to send it via smail mail.

Imagine how the softwaredevelopment for vdr would look like when software 
patents would come active.

pease contact me when you can program your PC tommorrow,
thank you,
