...this is a human error, but AFAIK nothing prevents it...
Other point : previous emails talk about various possibilities about DVB
My ideal setup would be :
* all DVB devices in a single headless always-on server
* all clients diskless, using an NFS share
This avoids to raise problems like DVB devices spread around on clients,
all with different capabilities, etc. Which could be a real nightmare
WRT selecting the proper (powered on) device for recording/liveview, etc...
I understand that VDR needs a plugin to solve issues like various DVB-S
devices not pointed at the same satellite. Distributing this problem in
a client/server setup seems arbitrarily complex to me.
(I currently have DVB devices partly spread around, and I don't want VDR
or any plugin to solve this issue, as I can just move hardware around)
(I also think that VDR is the only STB that can record many channels
regardless of the number of tuners : every other commercial STB I know
of can record one channel per tuner, and does not even try to suggest
that it could be possible to record a second one without a second tuner.
The bar is fairly low here, and VDR works much better than normal people
