From my point of view, the setup options have to get divided into frontend-
and backend-settings. Then all settings of each group should get divided into
installation settings and user-changeable settings.
For me, all FHS-related settings are installation settings. Same is true for
remote.conf and - of cause - the button order.
If you look at a possible multi-client installation, the button order is a
frontend-setting, which is an installation setting. You only change it, when
you buy a new remote control and then, the button order is not the only
setting, that needs to get changed.
I consider it ridiculous, being able to change the video-driver by osd.
That video driver is used by xine to render images to frontend, which possibly
is on a different machine. This way it is possible to crash the vdr without
possibility of recovery.
So moving a setup entry from osd to i.e. /etc/default/vdr may possibly
decrease user flexibility, but may increase system stability and safety.
So from my point of view, osd-setup entries are user-changeable backend
settings (well, currently the frontend user-changeable settings are stil mixed
All other entries should be handled differently.
But that issue will probabely pop up again after 2.0
