... where we would be back at my first patch, which added the possiblity to specify the svdrp port in the way "$IP:$PORT".

Maybe it would be an idea to combine the two. If the IP is given at command line with the -p switch, then this setting is preferred. If the IP isn't given at command line, then it is 127.0.0.1 if svdrphosts.conf only contains "127.0.0.1" and 0.0.0.0 otherwise.

IMHO we shouldn't get too complicated at this point, as it isn't VDRs main usage to be a network daemon, unlike apache, where there are much more and much more complicated ways to listen to one or multiple ports and to filter based on IP.
