i have a very funny problem ... i can not locate where vdr was compiled

Will patched XBMC work with vdr-1.6.x? and streamdev-plugin?

got it working, but face a few problems:
1. when compiling vdr i got some error and when i googled it, it turned out that im missing a library:
2. found everything in place in /usr/local/bin and edited it, but when i try to sudo runvdr, i got an error saying that ')' is expected on line 30, so i changed it to the following:
took JayJay's advice and tried to change it to what i wanted to load with vdr
3. now vdrrun run's for one time, but:
a. i can not use my remote (nexus-s with hauppauge grey remote)?!
b. when i try to stop vdr with ctrl-z it stops but when i try to run it again, nothing comes out on my tv??
update: i thought i'd add these from my dmesg:
maybe this could anyone to point out to me why my nexus remote is not working (it was working yesterday with a different compile of vdr)
there are a couple of things that look a bit weird to me, first the [v4l2] that is showing at the end of some of lines, this didn't used to be there, and then the last line.. what exactly is that, im not sure if this also used to be there before?

for the remote add to you runvdr after -Psc
and to kill vdr it is ctrl + c not z
then launch the script again
but in use with xbmc you should not need the -Premote option for the remote plugins.
and try to modify runvdr to
VDRCMD="$VDRPRG -E /etc/vdr -Premote -P'streamdev-server' -Psc -u root $*"
KILL="/usr/bin/killall -q -TERM"
DRIVERS="rmmod dvb_ttpci modprobe dvb_ttpci"
while (true) do
if test $? -eq 0 -o $? -eq 2; then exit; fi
echo "`date` reloading DVB driver"
echo "`date` restarting VDR"
the v4l2 is the name for the new v4l driver (Video4Linux)
and dvb-ttpci: found av7110-0 tell you that the module dvb_ttpci has found the card model av7110 number 0

JayJay .. no luck with the remote thing. i want to use it to configure vdr from its menus (besides it was working fine last night on another install i was trying)

try to delete your remote.conf in your config folder then relaunch runvdr it should start to try detect and lern key for remote else it is your keyboard that act as "remote"

well .. i think i will do a fresh install - wanted to do that to get rid of all the messy things that were installed during my tests ... will report back in few hours

Your going to be putting in a new hard drive as well, if you keep doing all these re-installs.
Anyhow, Can this be Used with a regular pvr-150 and an stb (express vu in this case) with a Schedules Direct channel subscription.

well .. i installed vdr from this guise http://dvbn.happysat.org/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=50032 (i wanted to make sure that the remote was working and that i haven't damaged the ir-receiver) and well ... it works.
the problem with that install is that its all packaged so one can not really add / recompile or patch anything on it...
and rodercot: yes i know dude it was not my intention to do all these formats, but with my little knowledge, one ends ups messing a whole lot of folders before one gets it right :o
