THanks for your reply. Ideally I'd like to be able to have the dxr3
working and xineliboutput simultaneously but the setup you have with
xine would do for now. I don't know how to get xineliboutput to become
the primary device and reconnect the dxr3 afterwards so I'll try xine on
its own.

Streamdev isn't quite what I want since you need a whole vdr install on
the client as well.

Thanks
