    Well, if you take a look at the vdr manpage it should be quite obvious...

    seahawk1986 sorry if i can't good understand your speaks. i am new on vdr . i search on web , unfortunately i can't find guide for compile vdr step by step .
    for video directory as you say. look when vdr say "vdr: can't access video directory video" means vdr havn't permission to acsses video directory . man page say "Use dir as video directory. The default is /video" i make dir video on root partition but vdr have issue again "vdr: can't access video directory video" . then i go to vdr directory and make dir video and run again vdr and issue disappeared.but i get two new issue

    1. aoa@aoa-Lenovo-G500:~/vdr-2.0.6$ vdr -c config -v video -Pxineliboutput
    2. vdr: error while reading 'config/sources.conf'
    3. vdr: error while reading 'config/channels.conf'

    I make video directory on vdr directory. and run vdr again . vdr has this issue

    1. aoa@aoa-Lenovo-G500:~/vdr-2.0.6$ vdr -c /var/lib/vdr/config -v video -Pxineliboutput
