Hi, I am starting to play with the SoftDevice Plugin, and trying to
start VDR via a BASH script. All appears to start but it never
completes, and I don't get any output, and have no ability to Telnet in
to VDR. If I start via straight Command Line it works fine. Is there
something I am missing? Here is how I have a script setup.
./vdr -P"softdevice -vo dfb: -ao alsa:pcm=default"
That is just an example but it is the jist of it. Script is executable,
and I run it with root priveledges. VDR does appear to start up and I
get scrolling text etc, but I get no video, nor can I telnet in on port
2001 to control it. BUT, if I just run the ./vdr script above with
those options from command line it runs just fine. And if I run VDR in
a bash script with any other plugin and take out the Softdevice plugin
it works fine. Just trying to troubleshoot where I might have something
Thanks for any help.
