I also have a suggestion.  It is nice to have vdr startup in a screen session
when working remotely.

I'm using something like this:

eval "screen -D -m -S vdr $VDRCMD &"

This starts a screen in detached mode called "vdr" and keeps the same PID.  When
logging in remotely to the machine, vdr can be monitored by typing "sudo screen
-r vdr".  To detach, type: ctrl+a d

Regards.
