xineliboutput <-> vdr-fbfe

  • Hello,


    I have headless VDR server and I have raspberry pi in another room connected to my TV.
    I am trying to send VDR output to vdr-fbfe on my raspberry pi.
    Its working, kind of. I can view video+audio but i can't see VDR's OSD menus.
    I can change the channels with up and down arrow on my TV's remote (HDMI-CEC) but i am not sure that other keys on remote are working.


    BTW the only OSD part I can see on the TV its the Signal Information from femon plugin.


    my questions are:
    Do I have to define remote.conf for my TV's remote that is communicating with vdr through HDMI-CEC?


    Maybe there is some special configuration to make OSD working. VDR or xineliboutput configuration?


    Thanks.

    No, that will not work. You need the vdr plugin cecremote.

  • First, thanks for your reply.


    I solved the OSD issue. The problem was that I have skincurses plugin installed which defaults to text console menu skin every time - which is not seen on TV.
    After removing the plugin I can now see OSD on TV.




    No, that will not work. You need the vdr plugin cecremote.


    Actually it works without this plugin. I can control VDR with my TV's remote only with xineliboutput plugin and frontend.
    But I am missing the Menu button. I can reach the menu with the 4 colored button and then pressing Back.


    Maybe I have to configure the keys somewhere.


    I still will to check this plugin - cecremote. But don't understand what the difference is.
