  Description     : VDR plug-in to enlarge 4:3 letterbox format on widescreen
displays

 The Avards (Automatic Video Aspect Ratio Detection and Signaling) plug-in for
 the Linux Video Disc Recorder VDR enlarges widescreen movies, that are sent in
 a 4:3 letterbox format. This is accomplished by changing the WSS signal sent
 to the display.
 .
 If a program is broadcasted in letterboxed 4:3 it would normally be displayed
 with black bars on the left, right, top and bottom edges of a 16:9 display.
 By manipulatin the WSS (wide screen signaling), the Avards plug-in tells the
 display to enlarge the picture.
 .
 The plug-in requires the DVB firmware version to be at least f42623 or newer.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of vdr-plugin-avards back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting vdr-plugin-avards, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 471904 ITP: vdr-plugin-avards -- VDR plug-in to enlarge 4:3 letterbox format on widescreen displays
 owner 471904 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <471904@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team
