# Send Dolby Digital audio to stdin of command cmd.
# Save cache files in dir (default is /var/cache/vdr).
# set the character table to use for strings in the
# DVB data stream that don't begin with a character
# table indicator, but don't use the standard default
# character table (for instance ISO-8859-9)
# Read config files from directory dir (default is /var/lib/vdr).
# Run in daemon mode (implies --no-kbd).
# Use only the given DVB device (num = 0, 1, 2...). There may be several -D options (by default all
# DVB devices will be used).
# Set the maximum directory path length to path (default is the maximum value allowed on the sys‐
# tem). If name is also given, it defines the maximum directory name length (default is the maximum
# value allowed on the system). The optional enc can be 0 or 1, and controls whether special char‐
# acters in directory names are encoded as hex values (default: 0). If path or name are left empty
# (as in ",,1" to only set enc), the defaults apply. The length of the video directory name and
# that of the actual recording directory is subtracted from path, to make sure the directory path
# will never become too long.
# Write the EPG data into the given file (default is epg.data in the cache directory). Use -E- to
# disable this. If file is a directory, the file epg.data will be created in that directory.
# Limit video files to size bytes (default is 2000M). This option is only useful in conjunction
# with --edit, and must precede that option to have an effect. size is an integer number and may be
# followed by one of the letters K, M, G or T to abbreviate Kilo-, Mega-, Giga- or Terabyte, respec‐
# tively. The given value is silently limited to the program's internal minimum and maximum values.
# Write images from the SVDRP command GRAB into the given directory dir. dir must be the full path
# name of an existing directory, without any "..", double '/' or symlinks. By default, or if -g- is
# given, grabbing images to disk is disabled.
# Use instance as the id of this VDR instance (default is 0). In an environment where several
# instances of VDR use the same video directory, this parameter can be set to a positive integer
# value that's unique for each instance, so that they won't interfere with each other in case they
# record exactly the same broadcast. The number given here will be part of the directory name in
# which the recordings will be stored.
# Set logging to level. 0 = no logging, 1 = errors only, 2 = errors and info, 3 = errors, info and
# debug. The default logging level is 3. If logging should be done to LOG_LOCALn instead of
# LOG_USER, add '.n' to LEVEL, as in 3.7 (n=0..7).
# Search for plugins in directory dir (default is /usr/lib/vdr/plugins). There can be several -L options
# with different dir values. Each of them will apply to the -P options following it.
# Use a LIRC remote control device. If path is omitted, vdr uses /var/run/lirc/lircd.
# Search for locale files in dir (default is /usr/share/locale).
# Mute audio of the primary DVB device at startup.
# Don't use the keyboard as an input device.
# Use port for SVDRP. A value of 0 turns off SVDRP. The default SVDRP port is 6419. You need to
# edit the file svdrphosts.conf in order to enable access to the SVDRP port.
# Call cmd before and after a recording. See the file INSTALL for more information.
# Read resource files from dir (default is /usr/share/vdr).
# Call cmd to shutdown the computer. See the file INSTALL for more information.
# Set the controlling terminal.
# Run as user user in case vdr was started as user 'root'. Starting vdr as 'root' is necessary if
# the system time shall be set from the transponder data, but for security reasons vdr can switch to
# a lesser privileged user id during normal operation. The default is 'vdr'
# Allow coredumps if -u is given (only for debugging).
# Use dir as video directory. The default is /srv/vdr/video.
# Activate the watchdog timer with a timeout of sec seconds. A value of 0 (default) disables the
