My VDR page
Here's some random details and notes on my VDR setup.
The linux drivers for the Origen VFD can be found at IrTrans.
I've also made a gentoo ebuild, email me if interested. The irserver also works for the IR
receiver, replacing lircd. The IR side is using a USB-to-serial converter, kernel detects it
The LCD is also driven via the irserver. IrTrans provides a version of the lcdproc that works.
- Athlon XP-M 2200+ underclocked to 1GHz
- 512M RAM
- Matrox G450 video card
- 250GB Seagate IDE HD
- Thermaltake Bach chassis, with an Origen 16x2 VFD unit/IR receiver
- 2x Technotrend DVB-C
- Silverstone fanless PSU
- Gentoo Linux
TV output is done with xinelibout plugin using DirectFB. My xine configuration file is here. Place it in /var/vdr/.xine/.
This is a small patch that adds Zeroconf advertising support to the streamdev VDR plugin.
Each HTTP stream is advertised as a Web site, type _http._tcp. Tested with KDE zeroconf:/
Requires the avahi-client libraries to be installed.
After applying the patch, either run make AVAHI=1 or edit the Makefile accordingly.
The functionality is quite limited. The current version just advertises 5 first channels.
