Solved the permission problem. It turned out that nfs uses root_squash 
option as default and I had to change that. I think this is due to tha 
fact that in server video directory in a mounted drive. Anyway now I 
have a client server system where I can use the commands.conf to swap 
the recording list between two systems. That is I mount one over the 
other and touch .update file.

So now I have server with two dvb-c cards of which one is FF card. I've 
got streamdev and subtitles plugins running.

Additionally I have a client with one dvb-t card and Matrox G400 
Dualhead with DirectFB and softdevice plugin for vdr. Also there is 
subtitles plugin in slave. This client is also independent vdr for 
moving it from one place to another (where is dvb-t signal).

Now it remains to edit commands.conf on server so that I am able to 
watch client recordings on server :)
