hi,
i want to use vdr on a terratec cinergy t^2.
therefore i tried to set up a xine plugin for vdr as described here:
http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Xine-plugin
compilation went without any problems so far, but stuff isn't working 
anyhow:
when i start vdr /var/log/messages says:

Apr  6 18:31:23 fozzy vdr[4319]: VDR version 1.2.6 started
Apr  6 18:31:23 fozzy vdr[4319]: loading /video/setup.conf

Apr  6 18:31:23 fozzy vdr[4319]: device 1 has no MPEG decoder
Apr  6 18:31:23 fozzy vdr[4319]: SVDRP listening on port 2001
Apr  6 18:31:23 fozzy vdr[4319]: switching to channel 1

which looks o.k. to me + no errors/warnings in /var/log/syslog.

when i start xine --verbose "vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes"
i get the following output:

gui_xine_open_and_play():
         mrl: 'vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes',
         sub 'NONE',
         start_pos 0, start_time 0, av_offset 0, spu_offset 0.
xine: found input plugin  : VDR display device plugin
vdr: failed to open '/tmp/vdr-xine/stream' (No such file or directory)
xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes]
xine: found input plugin  : VDR display device plugin
vdr: failed to open '/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes' (No such file 
or directory)
xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes]
xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL 
[vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes]

'/tmp/vdr-xine/stream' (No such file or directory) certainly is true, so 
for me it looks like vdr doesn't touch anything in /tmp - but why?
any hints?
regards, borghart
