Hi, I'm in the same situation, and most of my friends, using vdr the same way, too.
The only software, I currently know which works similar, is VOMP client/server. It is also independant and could be run standalone on Linux and Windows. But it is IMHO only a "worst-case-replacement" for sxfe. I also don't want to have a complete vdr environment running, for only watching TV on my laptops or any other remote station.

Hi, 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 the game. 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 available? Any other suggestions?
