Since VDR-version 1.3.? grabbing images to disc is disabled by default 
for security reasons. It is just possible to get then base64 encoded 
over the SVDRP conncetion with 'GRAB -'.
You must set a VDR commandline parameter to a directory to enable grab 
to disc. Grabbed images are stored under that directory.

I don not know the paramter name exactly - take a look at the man page 
or the commandline help.
