would it be possible to re-define the Shutdown button on your remote
to only stop vdr and not shutdown the whole system. With irexec you
could restart vdr again.

The other way would be to add a button to JP6 (the reset port). With
this pushbutton, you can restart the Raspberry Pi after a shutdown -h

Hi all, I just set up a couple of RPI's with the configuration of a
Raspberry Pi, rpihddevice and streamdev-client.

Works great but a couple of questions.

I'm interested to know what others have been able to accomplish with
this configuration to make it work better for them.  I've added a

In regards to the rpihddevice I am seeing some tearing or 'flutter'
when there is high motion with 1080 HD.  Its not so bad that it isn't
usable - it most certainly works 99% of the time just fine.  The one
feature I miss with the rpihddevice that softhddevice had was the
automatic zoom - hoping that gets added to the wish list at some
