- North American users have the option of applying the ratings 
  patch to VDR. Parental and star ratings will then be displayed 
  in fEPG's info window.
  The patch can be found in the 'patches' directory.

- PAL mode will not work on full featured cards due to lack of 
  OSD memory.

- If you are using a software output device, you might have to 
  use PAL mode even on an NTSC television.
