In the xineliboutput documents directory there is a README file that
explains how to setup xineliboutput where each client can watch different
channels. You are currently remote viewing the "master vdr" already so no
need to use the plugins. If you run vdr on each client then these plugins
are of greate use, which you are not, you are only running vdr-sxfe on it's

Are your plugins meant for solving a that kind of multiple clients want to
