I used softdevice for years and honestly do not think freezing was a problem. > Workaround is to kill frontend with remote and irexec. I run frontend in > loop, so it starts again in 2 sec. I have setup a key on the physical keyboard to do such. Thanks for pointing out that I can check the return values, that could be useful. One thing that I notice is that when vdr-sxfe freezes I can no longer do a svdrp GRAB. So, perhaps a cron job can be setup to try a grab, and if that fails restart vdr-sxfe. Or, xineliboutput could implement a PING command. A hack, yes, but it still might be better than frozen video! > > /etc/lircrc: > begin > remote = origen > button = Record > prog = irexec > repeat = 0 > config = killall -9 vdr-sxfe > end > > vdr-sxfe.sh: > #!/bin/bash > while true; do > vdr-sxfe --options.. > if test $? -eq 0 -o $? -eq 2; then > exit > fi > /bin/sleep 2 > done > > _______________________________________________ > vdr mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr > _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
