I am posting this here because my German is unfortunately not good enough yet for posting to the LinVDR list ..
Just installed LinVDR over weekend and all is now working great .. had an initial problem with VDR crashing (logs looked fine) and scan returning odd unrecognizable data and then crashing after 1st transponder scan which I resolved by simply replacing the ttpci-dvb and sp8xxx firmware distributed with LinVDR with the firmware distributed with my Technotrend Premium DVB-T card and the SP8xx from cvs dvb-kernel.
One last thing I would like to do is to have my display turn off (or at least turn off its backlight) after say 15 minutes of non-use.
I know how to do this in X using xset, but am not sure how to do it without X installed.
I do know that VDR is configured to automatically turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity which would solve this problem, however, this seems to take place even when there is a recording scheduled. Anyone know how to set it up so that it will only shutoff when there is not anything scheduled.
