  • Title: yaVDR: PVR for HDTV with XBMC - based on VDR, VDPAU and Ubuntu Linux
    Descriptive info: .. HDTV and XBMC in your living room - based on Nvidia VDPAU, VDR and Ubuntu Linux.. Home.. Blog.. Features.. FAQ.. Tutorials.. Installation.. Configuration.. Applying Updates..

Launchpad repositories (PPAs).. Template overview.. Events & Actions overview.. Team members.. Contact.. yaVDR: Combining the power of VDR and XBMC.. Watch and record HDTV and SDTV channels.. Easy-to-use VDR HD OSD.. VDR - a clever open source PVR solution.. Discover XBMC as a TV frontend.. Enjoy TV embedded in XBMC's Eye Candy.. Use a comfortable TV guide in XBMC.. About.. yet another VDR (yaVDR) is a Linux distribution focussed on Klaus Schmidingers.. Video Disk Recorder.. and based on Ubuntu Linux.. Although yaVDR works quite well already, there are many things that are either buggy or don't work automatically yet.. So we don't recommend it for productive usage in case you have no experiences in configuring VDR manually.. yaVDR tries to let you:.. Record your favourite TV programmes and watch your media in a smart way..  ...   own a Nvidia ION based nettop or a HTPC with a Nvidia GPU that supports.. VDPAU.. , your CPU will remain cool and your energy bill won't hurt you.. yaVDR relies on VDPAU which is currently the only simple way to get GPU based HD video decoding on Linux.. Start immediately after turning on the HTPC.. yaVDR wants to compete with other living room devices as much as possible using.. upstart.. to speed up the boot.. Besides that, the shutdown method S3 (Suspend to RAM) is enabled by default to bypass cold boot.. It is possible to let the system automatically wake up on timers and go to sleep after a configurable timeout.. Profit from our work, even if you don't install yaVDR.. If a complete distribution is not the right thing for you and you still want to use the latest VDR packages with your ordinary Ubuntu installation: No problem! Just use the Launchpad repositories yaVDR is based on.. Install the selection of VDR packages that you need.. Copyright © 2010 yaVDR.. This page was last updated on 2011-09-11..

  • Title: yaVDR: Installation
    Descriptive info: The bootable ISO image contains a standard Ubuntu text based installer (the same that is used on the Ubuntu alternate installer ISO).. It is not a live CD.. The installation should take no longer than 20-30 minutes.. Using VirtualBox:.. If you don't want to take any risks, you can install yaVDR on a virtual machine using.. VirtualBox.. to try it.. But you won't be able to test your DVB hardware or watch HDTV channels.. XBMC needs OpenGL support to start.. Install yaVDR from an USB stick.. You can create a bootable image on an USB stick - but.. you can't use the tool UNetbootin to do so.. It won't work!.. On Ubuntu (or booting from the standard Ubuntu Live CD) you can create a bootable image of yaVDR via.. usb-creator-gtk.. or.. usb-creator-kde.. (.. more infos.. Currently, we are evaluating reliable instructions on how to create the USB stick from Windows.. s2-liplianin support:.. If you are unsure if you need these special V4L-DVB drivers, leave them out during installation.. You can install them at any time later on.. (Please read section about DVB drivers below for further details.. ).. Partitioning:.. Regarding partitioning the hard drive, we generally recommend to have a swap partition and a root partition (ext4) as a minimum.. Username choice:.. This is very important: When you are asked to create a user account, please make sure that you.. don't choose the name vdr.. as your username.. You will run into big trouble if you choose the name vdr.. It is reserved.. remember.. the username and password because you will need it for the web frontend and for all command line operations.. Errors during installation?.. If the installation should abort, press Ctrl+Alt+F4 to see detailed error messages.. Please check the list of known issues.. About firmware and device drivers for DVB cards.. Many DVB cards (or USB boxes) need an appropriate firmware file in folder /lib/firmware.. Ubuntu provides a collection of firmware files in the packages.. linux-firmware.. linux-firmware-nonfree.. that are preinstalled on yaVDR.. If your DVB card needs a firmware to run on Linux and the firmware is not included in these packages, you have to find the appropriate firmware file and copy it to /lib/firmware.. Some manufacturers offer firmware files for download from their support web pages.. If you use a satellite dish for digital TV and own a DVB-S2 card/box, please check out the.. LinuxTV Wiki.. if the needed v4l drivers are part of the standard Ubuntu kernel.. If not, you might need to use the.. v4l drivers kindly provided by Igor Lilplianin.. to get the card/box working.. yaVDR provides a packaged version of these v4l drivers.. At the beginning of the installation you can enable the installation of these drivers with yaVDR.. But if you are unsure, you can also install them later manually via sudo apt-get dvb-s2api-liplianin-dkms.. A list of cards which are reported to work with this driver package can be found in this.. forum thread.. (German).. For users of the package  ...   3) You will see the no signal screen right after the VDR frontend has started.. After a few seconds, it should be replaced by the picture of the active TV channel.. 4) This dialog may also come up on VDR start: It offers you to map the keys of your remote control to VDR functions.. You can ignore this dialog in the beginning, especially as LIRC is not configured yet (which you can do later using the web frontend).. The dialog will disappear automatically after a few seconds and come back every time VDR is started until a key mapping has been done.. Troubleshooting: If no TV picture is visible.. FAQ.. Answer.. I have waited for a long time during boot, but I don't see a yavdr logo on my screen at all.. It seems that the X server is failing to start.. What can I do?.. Do you use a non-NVIDIA GPU? Please configure the X server manually and install missing display driver packages if necessary.. Try if you already can start the Web Frontend from a second computer for diagnosis.. After boot, there is nothing going on besides the yavdr logo in the center of the screen.. If there are updated yavdr-* packages avaliable, please apply the updates and retest.. After boot, there is nothing going on besides the NO SIGNAL sign.. If you haven't changed the channel list: Check if you have a working internet connection.. The pre-configured IPTV channels are streamed over the internet.. I use a NVIDIA GPU, but after boot, the NVIDIA driver doesn't seem to be loaded, VDPAU is not used or XBMC refuses to start.. This may happen if you have more than one active GPU in your setup.. Disable the onboard GPU to make a NVIDIA graphics card the only active GPU.. If you use an onboard NVIDIA GPU, make sure that a sufficient portion of your RAM is assigned to your GPU.. (BIOS setting).. First steps: Discovering the VDR frontend.. After boot, there is a TV picture on my screen.. Which channel is this?.. yaVDR comes with three pre-configured demo IPTV channels (3sat, ntv, nasa).. When you update the channel list, you can easily get rid of these channels.. How can I get to the OSD? My remote control doesn't work yet.. Press m on the keyboard to get to the main menu of the OSD.. Use the keyboard (arrows, numbers, ENTER) to navigate.. Can I change the language of the OSD?.. Yes, you can change it via the OSD menu itself (System- Setup- OSD- Language).. Alternativaly, you can achieve it by modifying /var/lib/vdr/setup.. conf (parameter OSDLanguage).. How can I start XBMC?.. In the main menu of the OSD, press 5 for applications, in the applications menu you find XBMC.. Next steps: Do you now want to configure LIRC to make your remote control work? Or would you like to add your personal channels list to VDR, please.. continue reading here.. This page was last updated on 2012-06-19..

  • Title: yaVDR: Configuration
    Descriptive info: Web Frontend.. Not all settings can be determined automatically during the installation of yaVDR.. Therefore, yaVDR is equipped with a web frontend that should allow you to configure the most important settings in a comfortable way.. How can you access the web frontend? If your yaVDR machine has the IP address 192.. 168.. 15, you can get to the web frontend.. http://192.. 15.. The username and password needed to login is the standard user you have set up yourself during installation.. To give you an impression of what the web frontend has to offer at this time, please have a look at the following screenshots.. You can access the frontend remotely, for example from a notebook.. Besides that, it is also available locally on the yaVDR machine: Firefox is pre-installed there too.. As of now, the web frontend is only available in a small number of languages.. Please contact us, if you are interested in translating the language labels to other languages! The current developer versions of the language labels can be found.. here.. VDR Configuration  ...   is possible to modify the system using the shell within a terminal.. There are several ways to access a shell on yaVDR:.. Within VDR-OSD main menu, choose Applications and in this menu Terminal.. This will open an xterm for you.. (You might want to use su - [yourUserName] there to switch to your own user.. Press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get to tty2.. After you have finished your work, press Ctrl+Alt+F9 to get back to the TV picture (X-Server).. (We don't recommend to use tty1 because we have tweaked the cursor there to be invisible for a nicer boot experience.. Connect to your yaVDR HTPC via SSH.. If you want to connect from Windows, use the nice little tool called PuTTY.. XBMC configuration.. To use yaVDR's XBMC version with VDPAU and PVR integration, XBMC currently has to be manually configured (we are working on automating this).. Within XBMC settings, you have to enable the VDR-streamdev PVR-client manually.. Under Video settings you have to choose VDPAU instead of Auto as the renderer..

  • Title: yaVDR: Applying Updates
    Descriptive info: Staying up-to-date.. To get the latest updates for yaVDR via the internet, you should regulary update the packages on your yaVDR installation.. This can be done from the command line like this:.. To refresh the list of available updates:.. sudo apt-get update.. To install available updates of installed package and also install necessary new packages use:.. sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.. This is the standard update workflow which is the same for all  ...   Whenever you use sudo, you need to type in the password that you have set for your personal user account during installation.. To understand the concept behind the sudo command is essential when using Ubuntu Linux (and yaVDR is built on top of Ubuntu Linux).. Please read the.. sudo documentation.. to learn why you don't need to care for a root password on Ubuntu.. This page was last updated on 2010-09-13..

  • Title: yaVDR: Mounting NFS shares via vdr-addon-avahi-mounter
    Descriptive info: Automount of NFS-Shares.. In most domestic installation nowadays there are several computers in use.. Each one with a special place for a distinct kind of media.. A desktop pc has the pictures from last holiday.. The videos are already converted and placed on a NAS.. Recorded videos from several VDRs are distributed around the house.. How fine would it be to have access to all of these everytime.. It could be done by sharing them across the network.. But now the problems begin.. NFS-static mounts are only established during startup of a workstation.. But what if the server is not ready at the time.. Autofs-based mounts circumvince that.. Mounts are only established as they are needed by the client.. But what if the server shuts down or the server becomes available after the first attempt to access.. All these solution have a general problem: they do not really take into account what the server actually offers.. The definitions are made on the client.. Insertion of a new computer into my landscape forces me to reconfigure my complete home-based installation.. To use it I have to change each client definition.. This is not what I want to.. Here comes a new idea originally raised from Apple and called Zeroconf.. The specification is free and a Linux implementation is available.. It's called Avahi.. This vdr addon now implements support for avahi for vdr.. The following howto should provide information how to use it with vdr, install it and make local adaptations.. The implementation was done on yaVDR.. But it is usable on any debian-based vdr installation.. How it works.. Each host holding some interesting data that could be shared has to broadcast its services.. This can simply be achieved by a text-based service definition and a daemon that performs the broadcasting.. Service-definition files are placed in /etc/avahi/service.. The format is explained later.. The broadcast is done from avahi-daemon  ...   not do any mounts the script has to be configured for that (see Configuration).. After a restart of the workstation the mounts should be there.. A good tool for analyzing is avahi-discover (part of avahi-tools, should already be installed).. It gives you a list of all exposed services on the network like this:.. Services.. Every path on your computer that should be shareable by others is called a service and is described in a distinct file.. The addon package already comes with a set of predefined services.. The description is done in a xml-based file like this:.. ?xml version= 1.. 0 standalone='no'?.. !DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM avahi-service.. dtd.. service-group.. name replace-wildcards= yes Recordings on %h /name.. service.. type _nfs.. _tcp /type.. port 2049 /port.. txt-record path=/srv/vdr/video.. 00 /txt-record.. txt-record subtype=vdr /txt-record.. /service.. /service-group.. This is the service description of the standard (yaVDR-) video directory.. It is placed in /etc/avahi/services and the filename must end with.. service.. For one services adjust the parameter accordingly.. Parameter.. Description.. name.. Unique name for the service.. The name is not used from yaVDR, but usefull for problem detection, e.. g.. with avahi-discover.. The wildcard %h is replaced with the hostname.. type, port.. Standard type and port parameter.. Do not change.. path.. Path to the directory that should be exposed to the network.. subtype.. Subtype of the service.. Significant subtypes for yaVDR are:.. audio.. picture.. video.. vdr.. All mounts are established beneath /media.. Subtype vdr get also a link to /srv/vdr/video.. 00.. The are only a few configuration options supported at the moment.. The default configuration is placed in /etc/default/avahi-mounter.. Just copy the file to.. /var/lib/vdr/.. avahi-mounter.. an make your changes there.. Options are:.. enabled.. The script is started by upstart.. The daemon can be disabled here.. Usefull for pure server installations.. media.. Base path for the mounts.. Base path for links to mounts of subtype vdr..

  • Title: yaVDR: Applying persistant changes to configuration files
    Descriptive info: Many configuration files are automatically overwritten by yaVDR regularly with new content.. If you're going to introduce persistant changes to configuration files manually, a decent understanding of the templating concept and the creation of custom templates will be mandatory.. This article covers both topics.. Standard templates and custom templates.. In yaVDR the main configuration files are compiled automatically from so called templates.. The default templates, provided by the yaVDR team, are called 'standard templates'.. We offer an.. overview page.. that lists all these standard templates.. As soon as you're introducing a change to the configuration files, you will be faced with a few hurdles:.. A direct change of a configuration file will be overwritten by the 'standard template' as soon as you update yaVDR system packages (e.. yavdr-utils, yavdr-startup,.. The installation/update of these packages trigger the regeneration of all configuration files.. Also, you're not supposed to change the 'standard templates' themselves, since these 'standard templates' will be reset during a package update.. Thus, there is the possibility to create custom templates that complement these 'standard templates' or over-rule parts of them.. Your custom templates have to be created manually in the directory.. /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/.. This directory (and its content) won't be changed, updated or deleted through package updates.. Note:.. To keep your frustration low, previous versions of the configuration files will be back-upped (to.. /var/cache/yavdr/process-template-backup.. ) before overwriting them.. Example #1: /etc/X11.. xorg.. conf.. As a practical example, let's have a look at the configuration file.. /etc/X11/xorg.. If there are no custom templates, the file xorg.. yavdr is entirely based on the default templates, which are maintained, delivered and updated by the yaVDR team.. Before we're gonna create custom  ...   yavdr is generated:.. 000header.. 001my_tempate.. 0100serverlayout-header.. Finally, you can initiate the generation of the configuration file manually:.. $ sudo process-template /etc/X11/xorg.. If you like to replace (instead of inserting) a part of our 'standard templates', your file name needs to be identical to file name of the standard template.. Of course, this works not only for the xorg.. yavdr, but for all configuration files!.. Example #2: /etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. For certain files, you might not like to have them updated (completely, or parts of it) at all.. Thus, we create a custom template to prevent future updates:.. We start again with the creation of the directory:.. $ mpdir -p /etc/yaVDR/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup/.. We will now copy all original templates into this directory:.. $ cp /usr/share/yavdr/templates/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. conf/10_enable-nvram /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. conf/.. conf/20_commandline /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. conf/30_specialshutdown /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. conf/40_force-reboot /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. In the next step, you can customize these files to your needs.. Use your editor of choice, e.. :.. $ nano /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. conf/10_enable-nvram.. conf/20_commandline.. conf/30_specialshutdown.. conf/40_force-reboot.. Finally, generate the template via:.. $ sudo process-template /etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. You can check the final configuration file via:.. $ cat /etc/vdr/vdr-nvram-wakeup.. Summary.. The 'standard templates', provided with the distribution, are located in:.. /usr/share/yavdr/templates/.. Your own customized templates will go below the directory:.. The script.. process-template.. will generate the configuration file accordingly.. Before overwriting any configuration files with new versions, process-template will put a copy of old configuration files below:.. Some files need special rights or security settings.. These can be set by:.. $ sudo process-template -owner=vdr -group=vdr /var/lib/vdr/setup.. $ sudo process-template -mode 755 /usr/bin/start-xine.. Acknowledgements.. We would like to thank Marcus Zurhorst for translating this tutorial to English language and creating the nice diagram for the summary.. This page was last updated on 2011-04-15..
