Zaerc, that symlink got created when you ticked that box for VDR. So removing it should be ok. You are correct in thinking that as long as the config file in /etc/default is set to Enabled=0 that it won't continue any further, but to remove it from even attempting you would take out that symlink, and later you can always add it back in by ticking that box heh. As far as DCERouter starting it or stopping it, that shouldn't be relevant with that config file, if it is set to Disabled, it is Disabled if DCERouter is running the init script. It still won't run, unless it is ran manually somehow like /usr/bin/vdr etc.. I am fairly proficient with VDR, and that's how we have always setup the startup scripts for them, but the truth be told, that is just how init systems handle things. I am still curious just cuz I am born that way lol, to see if I can make VDR run with it heh. It wouldn't work off the bat on the MD's till you compiled VDR on them as well, and use the Streamdev plugin on both the Core and MD's. But should work. But it wouldn't work with MCE's interface though, which is how I had Myth going before as well, skipping the interface. But hopefully with source we can alleviate that. Time shall tell. Good luck, hope ya don't have to re-install, at least not just yet heh, more stuff to break and test first before re-installing again lol.
