[vdr] Streamdev-client and shared video recordings directories.

I have a streamdev server-client set up here, the server has 2 dvb 
cards, and handles all the recording.  The client with no dvb cards 
using streamdev-client, shares the /video0 and /video1 directories via 
NFS mount, as well as epg.data.  The client only ever reads from the 
epg.data. The client is a diskless node, and boots via etherboot across 
the network from the vdr server machine.

My problem is that whilst the server is busy taping recordings, the 
client wont see any new recordings until its restarted and does another 
video directory scan.    Is there a way to do this scan every so often 
so recordings will show up on the client?  I imagine if I wanted to 
delete recordings from the client, that they as well would appear not 
deleted on the server, until it was also restarted.

Any thoughts on how to get around this (force video directory scan?, 
occasional video directory scan by VDR?)
