Hi,

i have problems getting vdr 2.2 with vnsi-server and an amazon fire tv with kodi to work. It seems as if vdr with vnsi-server is running, but on kodi (also tried on a normal pc) i only get "Connection Lost" failures.

My syslog on my tv server:
Code:
Sep  4 11:38:39 homeserver vdr: [369] VDR version 2.2.0 started
Sep  4 11:38:39 homeserver vdr: [369] running as daemon (tid=369)

my /var/lib/vdr/plugins/vnsiserver/allowed_hosts.conf
Code:
#
# allowed_hosts.conf  This file describes a number of host addresses that
#                     are allowed to connect to the streamdev server running
#                     with the Video Disk Recorder (VDR) on this system.
# Syntax:
#
# IP-Address[/Netmask]
#

#127.0.0.1             # always accept localhost
#192.168.1.0/24        # any host on the local net
#204.152.189.113      # a specific host
0.0.0.0/0            # any host on any net (USE THIS WITH CARE!)

But still Connection Lost... Any ideas?

p.s.: i copied that file there with
Code:
cp /usr/local/src/vdr-plugin-vnsiserver/vnsiserver/allowed_hosts.conf /var/lib/vdr/plugins/vnsiserver
is it right?
Some more info, please.

Code:
grep vnsi /var/log/syslog
So there arent any more information:

Code:
[email protected]:/home/markus# grep vnsi /var/log/syslog
Sep  4 11:25:26 homeserver vdr: [13311] loading plugin: /usr/local/lib/vdr/libvdr-vnsiserver.so.2.2.0
Sep  4 11:42:32 homeserver vdr: [840] loading plugin: /usr/local/lib/vdr/libvdr-vnsiserver.so.2.2.0

but maybe thats a hint ...
Did you set the correct IP in the PVR Addon? Normally there must be something like this one:
Code:
@HP-Server:~$ grep vnsi /var/log/syslog
Sep  4 07:45:06 HP-Server vdr: [56471] loading /var/lib/vdr/plugins/vnsiserver/allowed_hosts.conf
You can check also VNSI in syslog:

Code:
HP-Server vdr: [56471] VNSI: Client with ID 65 connected: 192.168.1.40:49729
strange ... i use self compiled vnsi-server-plugin with vdr 2.2 ... there is no line like
Code:
@HP-Server:~$ grep vnsi /var/log/syslog
Sep  4 07:45:06 HP-Server vdr: [56471] loading /var/lib/vdr/plugins/vnsiserver/allowed_hosts.conf
maybe i placed my allowed_hosts.conf wrong? Apart from that, there are no syslog entrys for clients trying to connect to vnsi-server.
Are you sure that the VDR is running?
