Well I thought I would start a new thread for this one as it seems to be getting lost in my previous thread.Well I have VDR up and running great on my hybrid machine.However when I try and launch live tv on a md I get no signal and chanel unavailable.Do I need to set anything manually on the md to tell it to look to the vdr server running on the core?Any suggestions?Regards
Ah ok. Damn.From what I have seen of vdr so far it kicks mythtv across the world. The work you have done so far on it is fantastic. It loads in less than a quarter of the time on mythtv and the channel change is much quicker.Is there any way to hack to to allow it to work on mds?Regards
Thanks for the as ever quick resposes andrew.Do you have any info/sample config fle and basic instructions on how to do this?Also couple of queries about vdr.1 Can you watch the same channel from the same tuner on 2 different media directors at the same time? This is an annoying thing missing in myth IMHO.2 Do you know if it supports DVB-C Cards with a ci/CAM to decode pay channels?3 Do all the tuner cards have to go into the core or can you have a secondary machine with extra tuners in like a myth slave backend.Regards
VDR supports using one cam on several cards in the standalone version.But by using a plugin that supports Cam/SoftCam/CardSharing, I do not think the version of VDR in LinuxMCE makes any difference.Tthat plugin lets you use multiple encrypted channels.
Thanks for the quick response.Well as for 1 that is not a big issue. So if it can pull more than one channel off of the one mux does that mean that 2 mds can be watching different channels on the same freq on the same tuner card. If so how come they can both watch the same channel?Also if a ci/cam was working on the system how would this effect the fact that vdr can pull multiple channels from the same mux?I was aware of this feature of vdr which is yet another thing I love about the package, Hwever I was wondering how this would work with the ci/cam.I suppose this comes down to if it decodes the whole frequency or just the single mux which I am not sure of, Any ideas on that?Lastly when you say this release are you reffering to 0710 as a whole or just the current betas?Regards
Hi fibres, In order to get vdr to work from an md i found a quick and static dirty fix which consist of replacing the plutovdr binary by a script that call it with dcerouter as argument. i'll explain: cd /usr/bin mv plutovdr plutovdr.orig vi plutovdr ( and add the following to the file) ######################### #!/bin/sh plutovdr.orig dcerouter 2>/dev/null 1>/dev/null ######################### My core has two dvb cards so this way i'm able to get the streams from vdr on my MDs.
