What Magnus says is true. VDR was not designed to operate as a server/client setup and at best you can slap together something that technically works but leaves a lot to be desired. I tried it once before and it was horrid. Although it's been a few years and I've heard it's "better" now. I opt'ed to stick it out with VDR in hopes that one day we'd see support for it. I know a bunch of people who defected to mythtv for this very reason but I couldn't bring myself to be one of them . ;) Bottom line, consider running multiple standalones because that unfortunately remains the best solution. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
