[vdr] VDR 1.7.x, FUPPES and an xbox 360 client

I have downloaded vdr-upnp and will give it a try but I see (please correct me if I am wrong) two points of concern

a) It works only for live tv, not vdr .TS recordings (which I am most interested in streaming to my xbox 360)
b) My channels.conf has over 1000 channels, neatly divided in groups. The vdr-upnp documentation states you can exclude certain channels from the plugin, but this could take for ages
as I would only be interested in streaming a few channels, can this be configured to exclude everything by default and only include a few that I specify?


Also back to FUPPES I notice it has the following entries in the config file:
 
       <file ext="mpg">
         <ext>mpeg</ext>
         <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type>
         <mime_type>video/mpeg</mime_type>
       </file>

      <file ext="vob">
         <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type>
         <mime_type>video/x-ms-vob</mime_type>
       </file>

      <file ext="vdr">
         <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type>
         <mime_type>video/x-extension-vdr</mime_type>
         <transcode enabled="true">
           <ext>vob</ext>
           <mime_type>video/x-ms-vob</mime_type>
         </transcode>
       </file>


But I think that refers to PS recordings (as it certainly was not working out of the box)
No mention of H.264 in the config file...


I have added the following :

       <file ext="ts">
         <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type>
         <mime_type>video/mpeg-ts</mime_type>
         <transcode enabled="true">
           <transcoder>ffmpeg</transcoder>
       <ext>vob</ext>
           <mime_type>video/x-ms-vob</mime_type>
         </transcode>
       </file>

should this work? (I am not at home to test at the moment)
