From VDR Wiki
LinVDR is small (~50MB) Linux VDR distributions. LinVDR works like a Firmware making your pc a digital video recorder. The setup tool guides you through the installation process and is easy for linux newbies too. The functionality of your VDR can be extended via plugins. Unfortionately LinVDR has NO COMPILER, and therefore this is NOT a developing system. If you want to extend the functionality with your own software this is not for you.
