Well dunno why, but had to run VDR in DAEMON mode in order to run in a
script. It runs fine without that mode if you just run it command line,
but in order to run as a script you run in daemon mode or just end the
script with an &. So either way solved my issue.! For anyone else that
might encounter it!
