What do they put into /etc/vdr and what in /var/lib/vdr? The vanilla vdr 
only has one config folder AFAIK.
OTOH I don't see why a wrong configured vdr config folder should give that 
error message.

I don't think that's needed. If a distribution modifies VDR it should also 
modify depending tools.

OK, the next release will use an existing vdradmind.conf as defaults for 
"vdradmind.pl -c". Thanks for suggesting.
