In my case every one of my vdr boxes are dedicated single-user htpcs. For me, having all of vdrs files in one location makes backups very easy to create & restore. Additionally, navigating to whatever file I need is simple -- no hunting or trying to remember what is where. My only big wish as far as setup goes is vdr getting real & solid server/client support, and the good news there is that unless things have changed, it's actually on Klaus's TODO list. But anyways, thanks to ONEDIR and LCLBLD, I can completely ignore FHS with no hassle at all. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
