283There's a remote configuration file available at Matthias Schwarzott's <uri
284link="http://dev.gentoo.org/~zzam/remote.conf">devspace</uri>. You will need to
285run <c>chown vdr:vdr</c> on the file to get it working.

289You'll probably want to configure your channels at this point. The VDR project
290provides you with some examples which can be found at
291<path>/usr/share/doc/vdr-analogtv-$version/examples/</path>, as long as you've
292installed &gt;=<c>media-plugins/vdr-analogtv-1.0.00-r1</c>.

341Some people prefer to use <c>vdr-xineliboutput</c>, because it can also work
342remotely. We'll now teach you how to configure <c>vdr-xineliboutput</c> on your
343host and client. First, the host setup:
344</p>
345
346<pre caption="Installing vdr-xineliboutput">
347# <i>emerge vdr-xineliboutput</i>
348# <i>emerge --config vdr-xineliboutput</i>
349</pre>
350
351<p>
352Adding command line options at this point is crucial for your softdevice to
353work. For more options, see <c>vdr --help</c>.
354</p>
355
356<pre caption="Adding command line options to /etc/conf.d/vdr.xineliboutput">
357_EXTRAOPTS="--local=none --remote=37890"
358</pre>
359
360<p>
361The next step is to edit <path>/etc/vdr/svdrphosts.conf</path>. This file
362describes a number of host addresses that are allowed to connect to the SVDRP
363port of the video disk recorder running on the host system.
364</p>
365
366<pre caption="Editing /etc/vdr/svdrphosts.conf">
367<comment>(The proper syntax is: IP-Address[/Netmask])</comment>
368127.0.0.1 <comment>(always accept localhost)</comment>
369192.168.1.0/24 <comment>(any host on the local net)</comment>

371#0.0.0.0/0 <comment>(any host on any net (USE THIS WITH CARE!))</comment>
372</pre>

375You must restart VDR for the changes to take effect:
376</p>
377
378<pre caption="Restarting VDR">
379# <i>/etc/init.d/vdr restart</i>
380* Stopping vdr ... [ ok ]
381* Preparing start of vdr:
382* config files ... [ ok ]
383* Waiting for prerequisites (devices nodes etc.) ... [ ok ]
384* Starting vdr ... [ ok ]
385* Waiting for working vdr ... [ ok ]
386</pre>
387
388<p>
389Now, simply <c>emerge media-plugins/vdr-xineliboutput</c> on your client, and
390start it.
391</p>
392
393<pre caption="Client setup">
394# <i>emerge vdr-xineliboutput</i>
395$ <i>vdr-sxfe xvdr://hostname</i>

324Another softdevice available in Portage is <c>vdr-xineliboutput</c>. 403If you need any help, you can always ask someone in <uri
