I have a new VDR+ server system, based on SandyBridge i3 CPU. This
server is located under the TV set, thus mixes the server (always-on
headless) + client (HD display) roles (previous setup was a Via EK8000
server + Via ML10000 client which ended up on the same shelf + another
I have two issues with this setup :
1) I don't know the best way to suspend the output of xineliboutput
(vdr-sxfe loaded within nodm which auto-reloads it upon crash) : the
xineliboutput README refers to the suspendoutput plugin
(http://phivdr.dyndns.org/vdr/vdr-suspendoutput/) which last release is
Since I use the e-tobi repository (marvellous, many thanks Tobias),
which does not include it, I wonder if there is a better way to suspend
the video decoding output.
2) the HUD OSD display works with --hud=xshape, but each OSD refresh
(changing time, recording location) removes the previous OSD, replacing
it with only the changed portion. --hud=opengl crashes vdr-sxfe because
OpenGL is probably not quite ready with SandyBridge. OSD without HUD
works, but is obviously ugly on the 1920x1080 display.
I pulled xineliboutput 1.0.7+cvs20110918.1632-1 from e-tobi : maybe this
CVS version is right in the middle of some change ?
Other versions (all binaries from e-tobi) :
