I don't think I've actually touched this file.

The reason I never got a response from the vdr forum appears to be because it was down for a few days. It now seems to be back up and running in a new format, and my login now works, even though I never got the confirmation email!

Cheers,

You compile yourself, right? So you can add some comments in the code for investigation. Start by uncommenting this line:
https://github.com/FernetMenta/VDR/blob/...can.c#L167

If this log doesn't show up in syslog, add additional logs for the conditions. Start here:
https://github.com/FernetMenta/VDR/blob/...can.c#L167

Find out if any of those conditions is not met.

EDIT: you can use svdrpsend SCAN to force scan. So you don't have to wait for scheduled scans.

Apologies for the delayed reply - I'm away from home quite a lot for the next few weeks, and not able to spend as much time on this as would appear necessary.

I tried uncommenting the line referred to above, but this did not produce any errors in the syslog. The syslog did make some complaints:

Code:
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6912] ERROR (lirc.c,43): /dev/null: Connection refused
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6912] ERROR: remote control LIRC not ready!
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6919] ERROR: lircd connection broken, trying to reconnect every 3.0 seconds
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6912] ERROR: no OSD provider available - using dummy OSD!
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6912] ERROR (tools.c,1733): /etc/vdr/channels.conf.$$$: Permission denied
Aug 16 13:37:09 Lightning vdr: [6912] ERROR (tools.c,1733): /etc/vdr/timers.conf.$$$: Permission denied
Aug 16 13:37:12 Lightning vdr: [6919] ERROR (lirc.c,43): /dev/null: Connection refused

I don't have any IR remote, so the LIRC errors are understandable. I'm not sure why its complaining about channels.conf and timers.conf, as these are set to root/root 644 permissions - ie: universally readable!

In the meantime, I have compiled and installed tvheadend, which just works!

Many thanks for your help, but I think at this point I simply have to accept that VDR doesn't like my system!

Cheers,

Those need to be also writable.
