I've been following various threads over the past year or so exploring various options for having a server-client vdr setup and it got me thinking.
I'm currently using a home-brew LIRC receiver attached to a serial port which works perfectly. The ION-based boards look very nice as a vdr front end (using xinelibout or some yet-to-be-written plugin!) because they can do hardware HD decoding. However, I suspect a lot of these lack a serial port so my simple LIRC receiver would be no good. What are others doing in this sort of situation? USB-based receiver (there are a couple described at lirc.org), or do most of the ION boards still have a serial header (must admit, not looked into this properly yet!)? Several DVB devices do contain receivers but that pretty much defeats the object of having a server containing DVB devices and a client just for viewing. It all looks nice in principle but any lack of a remote is a deal breaker!
