Well, since VDR unfortunately is designed as a stand-alone system, this has to be the most frequently asked question on this list. There is no really good way to do it, but the xineliboutput README contains useful info on one way of doing it. I have a headless server running one "Master" vdr that uses all eight DVB cards and two "Slave" vdr instances that uses streamdev and iptv to get the streams from the master. It's not ideal but works quite well. I hardly ever watch live tv so I mostly use the slave vdr's to watch recordings made by the master. /Magnus H _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
