The little penguin Tux




This is the home of my linux programs. You will most certainly want to download one of the projects related to VDR. The two projects at the bottom are no longer active.


OSD-Teletext Plugin

This plugin displays teletext directly on the OSD. It provides several features, the README knows more. Please refer to the README file for more details and documentation. Compile it like other plugins.



TicTacToe - Plugin

Windows XP - We suck more

Since Klicklack is a major project, it is hosted at Sourceforge. Please refer to its project homepage at for de



vtticker is a perl script that grabs pages from videotext/teletext (using alevt-cap) and transfroms them to RSS, a form of XML which can be read by knewsticker (part of KDE). As videotext contains high-quality news and stock quotes - at least the stations in Germany - I thought it would be quite useful.

If you want to use it you need a subscript that is specific to your stations. Currently available scripts:
TV station Country Contents
ARD Germany News
ZDF Germany Stock quotes
If you can't find your station here, and you're either familiar with regular expressions or want to learn it, then write your own! A sample script with detailed comments is included in the package. I wrote the scripts in Perl, but since they are call as an extra process (using Perl's qx()), it should be possible to write them in any other language like Python.
