Thanks Henrick,

On further investigation I have sorted it out.  In my firewall I'd 
mistyped the portforward, so it was arriving at vdradmin instead, which 
uses a different password.

I have it working. However, for the next version, is there a way to 
select two different streamdev profiles quickly.  When I am home I would 
like to select streamdev TS, but when away extern?

Also, is there a way to allow a change of language in the vlc plugin, or 
a way to serve up a file with the url in, for instance stream.m3u with 
the url in it like a playlist, a bit like a dreambox.  This would allow 
the vlc interface to select language etc.
