I am currently using xineliboutput, and I'm using it with "--local=none"
everywhere so I can attach and detach from anywhere in the LAN, even
from the PC VDR is running on. It's working quite nicely this way.
Upside: No local configuration on any PC, no concurrency issues with
timers, channel updates etc.. just call "vdr-sxfe <host>" and you're in
Downside: Multiple connected clients at the same time get the same
programme, OSD, etc. [skippy/hanging video for adapting to the different
client speeds, OSD sizing issues for different client resolutions]
Is there an equivalent solution which I read to be a more recent/better
supported alternative? AFAIK softhddevice is similar to xineliboutput
but lacks remote features, behaves like xineliboutput with
"--local=sxfe --noremote", but I could be wrong. This doesn't look like
a viable alternative to my current network architecture.
While streamdev and VNSI/XVDR solve some of the issues, most notably the
multi-client dependency, they create new ones. No native OSD with
VNSI/XVDR, VDR configuration synchronization hassle with streamdev.
Is there any other thin-client streaming solution with native VDR OSD
Any other suggestions?
