I also have a suggestion. It is nice to have vdr startup in a screen session
when working remotely.
I'm using something like this:
eval "screen -D -m -S vdr $VDRCMD &"
This starts a screen in detached mode called "vdr" and keeps the same PID. When
logging in remotely to the machine, vdr can be monitored by typing "sudo screen
-r vdr". To detach, type: ctrl+a d
