Introduction

This article describes some aspects to setup an enviroment with a VDR server and a xine stream client.

Here typically should be the obligatory screenshot of my desktop showing the running stream - I add that later on :)

The setup as basic for this article

We need some Hardware - I my case:

  • a laptop DELL D620
  • an external USB S2 digtital HD device TeVii S660
  • a TechnoTrend remote control (because unfortunately the remote control support of TeVii S660 is buggy in my setup)

And of course some software repositories - in my case:

  • Base OS is openSUSE 11.4
  • Additional package repositories: TBD

We setup the following componets

Here the article should go forward

UNSORTED STUFF

Auf dem Laptop Latitude D820 habe ich einen vdr installiert mit einer externen USB-Box TVii 660

Installation of the DVB-S2 USB-Box

<TBD>

Installation vdr

<TBD>

Plugins

We need / expore the following VDR plugins:

  • xine
  • streamdev
  • libxineoutput

Video clients

Remote Streaming: vdr-plugin-streamdev

vlc - What is already runnign is that you can watch TV and also switch the programm. But you do not have full control over VDR using that method.

vlc http://127.0.0.1:3000/PES/1

URL in general:

http://<hostip>:<port>/[PES|xx]/<prognummer>

You need to setup the file streamdev.conf:

# streamdev.conf:
<TBD>

Passender /etc/sysconfig/vdr Auszug

 VDR_PLUGINS="streamdev"
vdr-plugin-xineliboutput

With xineliboutput

vlc tcp://localhost:37890

But how to switch the program using this connection?

Best practice Localer access with OSD: vdr-plugin-xine

Using the xine plugin (from repository PackMan) you could use xine for a complete VDR client (with full control over all menus).

xine vdr://

Matching line in /etc/sysconfig/vdr

 VDR_PLUGINS="remote xine"
 VDR_PLUGIN_ARGS_remote="-i /dev/input/ir"
 VDR_PLUGIN_ARGS_xine=""

Remote Control

TeVii S660 remote control is a bit painfull for me

Translation: <TBD>

  • Mit dem Update von c.a. Mitte März auf den Herstellerseiten (auf Simplon Download/Tevii) geht nun die Erkennung der Fernbedienung
  • Kleiner Patch in ./v4l/dw2102.c die Ausgaben von "query RC..." auskommentiert (also nicht aktiv), weil sonst der syslog voll läuft
  • VDR meldet (ohne Config s.u.) beim Starten, dass er kein lirc findet, allerdings scheint die Fernbedienung als Tastatur zur funktionieren:
    • Test mit fb bringt messages im syslog (kann ggf später entfallen)
    • xev zeigt tastaturreaktion, wenn man fb bedient
    • KDE lautstärke regler funktioniert bereits :)
    • Cursorbewegungen (auf/ab/rechts/links) funktinieren u.a. hier im wiki :)
    • war jetzt nach einigen Eingaben nicht stabil - prüfen!

In den VDR bindet man die Fernbedienung mit dem plugin remote ein. Passender Auszug aus der /etc/sysconfig/vdr

 VDR_PLUGINS="remote"
 VDR_PLUGIN_ARGS_remote="-i /dev/input/ir

Die Berechtigungen für das IR-device (/dev/input/ir) müssen so eingestellt werden, dass der VDR (Benutzer vdr) darauf Zugreifen darf.

 chown vdr:users /dev/input/ir

Die FB muss beim ersten Benutzen im VDR trainiert werden, wenn die Datei /etc/vdr/remote.conf nicht angepasst wird (Datei stelle ich bei Bedarf zur Verfügung :).
