You're right, Perl is awfully slow. Setting up an autotimer lasts over 5
minutes on my VIA EPIA-5000!
Have you ever thought about integrating the VDRadmin functions as plugins?
You could create a generic HTTP-Plugin for VDR providing an extended OSD
which can display more objects by higher resolution.
Input capturing (keyboard/mouse) and getting the resolution of the browser
That way you can create plugins using all the fast interface functions of
VDR and the generic HTTP plugin for Input/Output. Then it's easy to add
VDRadmins functions plugin by plugin without doing everything twice.
And if you wanna play God, you could even play tv/recordings on the client
by starting the client's media player embedded in the browser ;-)
