easy way around this: tell xine to exit when the stream finishes and run it in a loop. I am running the following in a shell loop. the important options being --no-splash and --auto-play=fhq, so xine starts immediately playing the stream and exits as soon as the stream finishese (e.g. when vdr restarts) or when xine chokes on a "faulty" stream. I also sometimes saw runaway xine processes, which still hold the xv/xvmc port, so everything called xine is killed forcibly afterwards. xine $VERBOSE --aspect-ratio 4:3 --geometry 1024x768 --no-splash --no-lirc \ -V xxmc -A alsa --post vdr --auto-play=fhq \ vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes killall -9 xine -- c u henning _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
