Yes, I have AMD 780G also in my vdr server and in clients I am currently using the vdr-xineliboutput. What I have now tried to search for is a fast booting client for my old P700, that could boot automatically to X with dummy user and then launch the vdr-xineliboutput. The ideal would be that once bios checks have been done, rest of the boot would for getting X and vdr client running would take less than 30 seconds from the bios checking, but currently I am very far from that and I am not sure what would be the best option for the client. 1) local harddisk for booting and launching X and vdr-sxfe 2) nfs mount from server for booting and launching X and vdr-sxfe 3) local harddisk booting X and connecting to server with XDMCP. (would video and audio work over XDMCP from server?) 4) lpts5 where some apps would be run from server, while multimedia like vdr-sxfe would be run from client harddisk What kind of solutions what boottimes you have for the clients?
