Hey Cedric,


looks like you are using a Debian based installation, probably with Debian packages based on Tobias Grimm's great work over years, and for sure his co-workers.


Obviously you're dutch and maybe capable to understand some gernan words. So,  you may have a look into an article Tobias wrote quite a while ago on his homepage:




This way does work also perfectly with Ubuntu … ;-)



Kind regards

Subject: [vdr] Change vdr shutdown command (into pm-suspend)


Hi All,

I'm trying to make my TV server faster by calling pm-suspend instead of shutdown. I have made a script that stops vdr, unloads the DVB-t driver, suspend, resume, load the DVB-t driver, and restart VDR. This works nicely., see here for details:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5 <http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=109612> &t=109612

Now I'm trying to automate it.

VDR is capable of shutting down the PC. This can be setup in /etc/default/vdr

Is there any way to let VDR call pm-suspend instead of /sbin/shutdown? Where is the setting for it?

Best regards,
