Subject: [Livid-dev] New versions: dvd_disc and dvd_decoder

I put new versions of the disc access and the decoder access module up on

The dvd_disc module recognizes now if the library functions support 64
bit file seeks and incorporates a workaround, if not.

The dvd_decoder module can now additionally support the siemens /
hauppauge / technotrend DVB sat receiver card as a decoder board. For
more information on this PCI-board and the driver, see

This might be interesting to some of you out there, since this board is
already available (ca. DM 500 / US$250). You will need software CSS to
play scrambled DVD's, and for now only MPEG audio is supported.

Keep an eye out for the dvd_css module, it will probably appear soon at
a cvs near you.

  Have fun,

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference,
