attach/detach pvrinput-devices while vdr is running
Now pvrinput is compatible with the dynamite-plugin!
The dynamite-plugin is a helper plugin which allows to dynamically attach and detach devices while vdr is running.
This is useful for slow USB-DVB-Sticks or other hardware which would delay the start of vdr and increase boot time.
pvrinput supports some USB hardware (e.g. the "HD PVR" and "PVR USB2" from Hauppauge). These (and of course the PCI cards as well) can now be attached/detached from vdr without stopping it. Just send the right SVDRP command:
svdrpsend plug dynamite attd /dev/video0
svdrpsend plug dynamite detd /dev/video0
If you don't use dynamite or have an unpatched vdr - don't worry - pvrinput will behave as it always has... :-)
The source for the dynamite plugin is available at the VDR Portal:
