The EPGSearch plugin adds some useful features to your VDR system. Certainly, the most commonly used feature is, that this plugin enables the VDR system to automatically search for programs to record (based on times, channels and/or days).
To install the plugin just use:
# sudo apt-get install vdr-plugin-epgsearch # sudo /etc/init.d/vdr restart
If you have VDRAdmin-AM installed you can use the web interface to easily configure the auto timers. After VDRAdmin-AM is restarted it will automatically detect that EPGSearch is enabled and adds an additional link to the navigation. To setup VDRAdmin on Ubuntu 9.10, just follow my howto “Ubuntu 9.10: Setup VDRAdmin-am”.
