And we have the vdr-plugin-vnsiserver plugin which is loaded by vdr. can you rephrase your question using these terms.
Sorry for the strange expressions. I'm a little bit confused as well, since I'm on Openelec single seat now and it uses add-on (including the server and VNSI-plugin). I will try to show what I'm using at the moment:
Openelec-> vdr-server add-on as service -> vdr-vnsi plugin as PVR add-on for OE (this connects to the vdr-server service add-on). This is how it works on OE.
I intend to move the server part to a dedicated small itx machine running 7/24. So I will not need the vdr-server add-on at the client OE side, as this will be located on the itx server machine.
Home server: running lets say Ubuntu Server -> here I need to install vdr + vdr-plugin-vnsiserver plugin following your guide (if I'm correct). This will enable all the clients running Kodi (including OE) to connect with the PVR plugin vnsi-client from official add-on repository, point it to the home server ip address where vdr + vdr-plugin-vnsiserver plugin is installed (Kodi wiki). I believe I have used now the correct expressions and explained my intentions.
The home server is a headless server, vdr is used only as a backend, will not be used to watch tv, but only accessed by clients running Kodi (no matter which version, OE, Linux, Windows -- all have the PVR vnsi-client as add-on available.
All the plugins, configuration files, etc will be located on the home server.
I really hope that I was able to summarize this now correctly using regular expressions.
