Forgot to say, also download and install streamdev, with the  
necessary streamdev patches. Then copy over the channels.conf file  
from the server machine (running with streamdev-server) to the client  
machine, and use streamdev-client. I've tested it and it works. The  
VDR on mac instructions has links to streamdev patches for the mac.
