I support Udo's opinion too. We have a vdr running at work. It starts up
as a daemon on boot. So this would match your argumentation. But we
found out, that for cutting, it is easier to login to the vdr server and
start a special vdr with softdevice(xv) output and (optional)
streamdev-client input. The output is forwarded sufficiently fast via
ssh-XForwarding in a Gigabit network. With this application in mind, I
vote for not moving vdr to /usr/sbin.

Anyway, I also have my own installation method, and can handle the move
on my side, too.

So long,

Patrick Cernko
