Some concept ideas: sure, man page says: -D num, --device=num Use only the given DVB device (num = 0, 1, 2...). There may be several -D options (by default all DVB devices will be used). I was thinking adapter == device. i think you're right, it's kind of outdated. > vdr -D /dev/dvb/adapter0 > - use only adapter 0 agreed, or -D 666 or -D /dev/dvb/adapter666 (l...@usedevice) > vdr -D /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1 > - use only frontend 1 of adapter 0 - this could be tricky > > vdr -D /dev/dvb/adapter1 -D /dev/dvb/adapter0 > - Swap ordering of devices i've stopped trying to understand how GetDevice decides... i guess it's outdated as well. > vdr -D /dev/dvb/primary > - follow a symlink primary -> adapter0, like generated by udev > > vdr -D "/dev/dvb/*" > - use all DVB devices > > vdr -D /dev/dvb/primary -D "/dev/dvb/adapter*" > - Use primary first, then use all remaining devices.

If we consider a device (man page) == an adapter, am I breaking things down ? -- _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
