VDR Manual Install on LinuxMCE 710
Everything mentioned below is based from a clean lmce0710 amd64 installation.
Create a channels.conf as explained in lmce wiki an dupload through webadmin.
Download vdr-1.6.0-6_LMCE0710-10.tar.gz from http://126.96.36.199/vdr-LMCE0710-10.tar.gz
Install specific instructions for Core and MD. (only app binaries)
Unpack tar.gz file in /home/linuxmce
cd vdr0710-10 cd <into directory named i386 or amd64 depending on which architecture you use> cd common dpkg -i *.deb (answer yes to question if config file should be replaced) cd .. cd core dpkg -i *.deb /etc/init.d/vdr restart
Check if vdr load on startup, xineliboutput and streamdev-server plugin.
ssh into your core.
sudo su - ssh moonXX (where XX is the number of your MDs) cd /home/linuxmce cd <into directory named i386 or amd64 depending on which architecture you use> Remember that you MD can run a different architecture than your core. cd common dpkg -i *.deb (answer yes to question if config file should be replaced) cd .. cd md dpkg -i *.deb /etc/init.d/vdr restart
If you need to build other VDR plugins you need to install vdr-dev. It is located in directory named optional.
Build your channels.conf file as per instruction in lmce wiki, wiki.linuxmce.org apt-get install dvb-utils /etc/init.d/vdr stop
scan -o vdr /usr/share/dvb/scan/dvb-t/<FILENAME> > channels.conf
Upload channels.conf in webadmin.
You need to modify some settings to allow liveTV to work on MDs. The files that you have to edit is:
In /etc/vdr/plugins/streamdev.conf add line:
or uncomment if it already exist.
In /var/lib/vdr/setup.conf (remember /etc/init.d/vdr stop before you edit any config files) Add lines: (at the end)
streamdev-server.AllowSuspend = 1 streamdev-server.MaxClients = 6 streamdev-server.StartHTTPServer = 1 streamdev-server.StartVTPServer = 1 streamdev-server.SuspendMode = 1
Edit /var/lib/vdr/setup.conf Add lines:
streamdev-client.RemoteIp = 192.168.80.1 streamdev-client.RemotePort = 2004 streamdev-client.StartClient = 1 streamdev-client.StreamFilters = 0 streamdev-client.SyncEPG = 0
posde The original instructions by niz23 called for SyncEPG = 1 on the MD.
