Yes, I have AMD 780G also in my vdr server and in clients I am currently 
using the vdr-xineliboutput.

What I have now tried to search for is a fast booting client for my old 
P700, that could boot automatically to X with dummy user and then launch 
the vdr-xineliboutput.

The ideal would be that once bios checks have been done, rest of the boot 
would for getting X and vdr client running would take less than 30 seconds 
from the bios checking,  but currently I am very far from that and I am 
not sure what would be the best option for the client.

1) local harddisk for booting and launching X and vdr-sxfe
2) nfs mount from server for booting and launching X and vdr-sxfe
3) local harddisk booting X and connecting to server with XDMCP.
    (would video and audio work over XDMCP from server?)
4) lpts5 where some apps would be run from server, while multimedia like
    vdr-sxfe would be run from client harddisk

What kind of solutions what boottimes you have for the clients?
