Description

Screenshot

The remote plugin (also called remote control plugin) extends the remote control possibilities of VDR. It's about a modular add on to VDR, which in particular makes use of the original IR receiver of the Hauppauge Nexus rev. 2.1/2.2 DVB card. Both, the old black and the new silver are supported. Furthermore every remote control that speaks RC-5 could be used.

Supported input devices

The following remote control devices are supported

  • linux input device driver (/dev/input/eventX, X=0,1,2,...)
    • built-in remote control port of the av7110-based DVB cards (aka full-featured cards), e.g. DVB-S Nexus (*)
    • remote control port of some budget cards, e.g. Nova-CI (**)
    • other input devices (not tested, please report success!)
    • See file FAQ for a list of cards which have been reported to work.
  • keyboard (tty driver): /dev/console, /dev/ttyX
  • TCP connection (telnet)
  • LIRC


(*) supported by DVB and dvb-kernel
(**) supported by dvb-kernel only
