After hack is complete, It's became simple program.
Here we making loading as library and program could be reachable by exeDSP.
Overwriting some language area with our code (in binary via Firmware patcher) and placing hooks to Rec button to this function that we injected to exeDSP's unused language translations area, than it's no difference between loading library or already patched exeDSP.

You can use videoARFix v2 via AVRFixv2 utility or Firmware Patcher (only for T-CHL7DEUC 2004.1).
If I understand newagehuns code, than I could patch v2 to fimrware easyly but I don't understand the hook points.

Since I started PVR tools, I already know button press capture procedures and high probability to convert it into TV's firmware by Firmware Patcher later :)

Such a thing is not possible via parameter change...
It require remuxing but this is NOT related with PVR tool.
But we could place another application that remux these medias at background after capture is complete...

How many time it would be use for remux for example a 90 minutes-film ?

Remuxing does not take much CPU power, it takes nearly same time for copying that file.
But downside is AFAIK this TV's USB controller is really slow. Again it's enough juice to make the job quick.
I am still voting for recording via NFS/Samba. Computer could automatically convert those streams into mpeg/avi/mkv file within some small scripts...

(Both datastreams (play and recording) were on the same USB drive)
This is really good news.
I suppose that it needed to work in same time but don't actually tried before. :D

I also tried to play recorded streams on TV.
In my case, generally I can play recorded streams - aspect ration is bad and for some specific channels, I cannot hear anything, because there is more audio channels in the stream and the first one (dolby digital?) does not seem to be possible to play by TV.
Finally I also checked recording while playing recorded stream and it works. I also vote for network because using USB can be very unstable for parallel reading and writing. I think I'll try implement one interesting feature, you can guess what ;-)
