This could be avoided by backgrounding VDR, do other stuff, and then 'wait' for VDR to terminante. 'wait $PID' will even return the error level of VDR.

This is how the script makes vdr will restart automatically when it crashes. I'm
looking for a way to have vdr execute the command so I dont have to guess with
sleep statements.

So you actually want to start your process some time *after* VDR started up, so that VDR has initialized some stuff. So for what are you waiting actually? Reading configuration? Loading plugins? Starting pending timers? Updating EPG?

Cheers,
