Hi, In a setup with multiple vdr instances sharing the same dvb tuners it's practical to keep one as a master that upgrades channels.conf automatically and the other instances get periodically a new copy of the channels configuration. That allows manual editing of channels in the master vdr and running plugins like autosort there.
I'm now killing my secondary vdr instances while the channels are copied by a cron job every night. It would be more practical for remote vdr-sxfe clients to keep vdr processes running to avoid loosing the streaming connection. Is it possible to signal somehow vdr to reread it's entire channels.conf when it has been changed externally? By SVDRP? Seppo PS. It would be nice if multiple displays with shared server related architecture improvements were on Klaus' hidden roadmap ;^) At the moment when running several vdrs there is a mess with channels synchronization, live tv pausing, live & recording dvb subtitles, generally problems due to pay-tv watching (CAID as zero) by preventing allowing pid updates on secondary clients, etc. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
