with vdr-plugin-lcdproc as client this never was a problem, because this
client updates the screen all the time.
I have no problem to change the timeout of vdr-wakeup firmware to let's
say 10 sec to put it high above the Waittime default value of 5. After
all it is only a fallback when something went wrong with the PC. In
normal case the vdr-wakeup should get the end code 0xCF send. Then this
problem with backlight being turned of would be no more.

Today I got a look at the CVS. I like the new aproach with the unified
serial attached display driver. I also found my charmap for SED1278F_0B
included. My VDR-Wakeup page is already linked in the driver
documentation hd44780.docbook. Please feel free to link to it. I will
update it as soon as possible and will test this new version. It's about
time to switch to V5.1. ;)

Bye Frank
