I have a feature reuqest for the vdr dlna server.
I bought a tv and fast forwarding through the dlna is terribly slow (tried
minidlna) and there are no "skip one minute" or "goto hh:mm" etc.
functionality at all.
Skipping minute forward, backward and "goto hh:mm" like vdr does could be
implemented in the dlna server. Then the user could send these commands to te
server which would do the skipping (its easy when we have the vdr index files).
Of course controlling can't be done with the dlna client remote control and
doing this with multiple dlna clients is not so simple (need separate remote
control for each client, etc).
Vdr in a cheap computer that is not able to decode and deinterlace the video
properly. Connect a dlna cabable tv to the dvi output of the computer and the
tv to the same network as the computer. Then it will be possible to create a
cDlnaDevice that will draw osd on an X11 window and send all video to the dlna
client. If the tv is remote controllable through serial port or ethernet then
switching from video to osd and back could be automatic. Of course it wouldn't
be osd any more, but menus could be used anyway. Unfortunately subtitles
wouldn't work at all unless the tv supported them.
