[vdr] streamdev-CVS with vdr-1.3.27 broken?

I'm trying to use streamdev-cvs as of one hour ago with vdr-1.3.27
primarily for osdpip. It seems streamdev is broken (again):

- it does not create a menu entry in the top level menu
- it doesn't even attempt to talk to my server as shown by
  tcpdump -X -i eth0 host and tcp port 2004
  (the server is accepting connect requests with "telnet server 2004" just

The client is configured like this

streamdev-client.RemoteIp =
streamdev-client.RemotePort = 2004
streamdev-client.StartClient = 1
streamdev-client.StreamFilters = 0
streamdev-client.SyncEPG = 0

/var/log/messages on the client shows that the plugin is initialized and
started just fine: 

Jul 17 13:41:30 linvdr vdr[10630]: initializing plugin: streamdev-client (0.3.3-pre3-geni): VTP Streaming Client
Jul 17 13:41:30 linvdr vdr[10630]: starting plugin: streamdev-client

The server is configured with its defaults as in server/setup.c. It
does listen to the relevant tcp ports as shown by "netstat -atnp". 

When the client starts, there is nothing in the syslog. Well, the client,
as shown, doesn't even try to contact the server. 

So - what gives? 

Remark: last time it worked was streamdev-0.3.3-pre3-geni (non-cvs). I
could program new timers on the server but the name of the recording was
empty so that the channel name was used on the server's /video. Just
cosmetical but maybe this helps. 


Pretend to spank me -- I'm a pseudo-masochist!
