Well, that depends. The 'typical' use of VDR as recorder daemon, 
starting at boot time, would suggest this. However, I also have a 
secondary VDR on my notebook, relying on streamdev and xine-plugin, and 
in that case its really more an user process that is only started when 

On the other hand, I don't use the default make install anyway. ;)
