Solved the permission problem. It turned out that nfs uses root_squash
option as default and I had to change that. I think this is due to tha
fact that in server video directory in a mounted drive. Anyway now I
have a client server system where I can use the commands.conf to swap
the recording list between two systems. That is I mount one over the
other and touch .update file.
I have only recordings in video directory so that is no problem. No
I've tried it but ran into rights problem when touching .update. Even
though I set rw rights in exports and mount shows me that I do have rw
set for the mount. Propably this is due to the fact that the original
mount does not want to unmount for some reason. Ive tried doing it
manually without help. Not even an error message. I might have to
settle with the subdir solution.
I thought about trying that but bear in mind that that would also
replace the *.conf files (unless they are elsewhere) and the epg
data. You'd have to restart vdr for the mounting.
Another point to watch out for is you need to do a "touch
/video/.update" to get vdr to acknowledge the mounted recordings. If
you get the permissions right, you can delete and edit the remote
recordings with no problems.
So now I have server with two dvb-c cards of which one is FF card. I've
got streamdev and subtitles plugins running.
Additionally I have a client with one dvb-t card and Matrox G400
Dualhead with DirectFB and softdevice plugin for vdr. Also there is
subtitles plugin in slave. This client is also independent vdr for
moving it from one place to another (where is dvb-t signal).
Now it remains to edit commands.conf on server so that I am able to
watch client recordings on server :)
