              Select audio driver and optional port

              Select video driver and optional port As far as supported, possible  video  drivers
              might be: fb, DirectFB, sdl, vidixfb, dxr3, aadxr3 or none

              Display  aspect  ratio  (You  can  us  a  script  to  control  the HW aspect ratio:

              Fullscreen mode

       --hud  Head Up Display OSD mode

              Video window width

              Video window height

              Disable all video scaling

              Load and use xine post plugins, e.g.:

              ·  --post=upmix

              ·  --post=upmix;tvtime:enabled=1,cheap_mode=1)

              Use lirc input device Optional lirc socket name can be given

              Verbose debug output

              Silent mode (report only errors)

              Write all output to system log

              Disable keyboard input

              Run as daemon (disable keyboard, log to syslog and fork to background)

              Enable slave mode (read commands from stdin)

              Automatically reconnect when connection has been lost

       --tcp, --udp, --rtp
              Use TCP, UDP or RTP transport If no transport options  are  given,  transports  are
              tried in following order: local pipe, rtp, udp, tcp


       Search  for  VDR  (xineliboutput)  server,  connect  to  it  and  negotiate best available
       transport, use best available audio and video driver:


       Connect to default port and negoate best available transport:

            vdr-fbfe xvdr://

       Connect to, port 12550 and use TCP transport:

           vdr-fbfe xvdr+tcp://

       Automatically search for VDR server and use UDP transport:

           vdr-fbfe xvdr+udp:
           vdr-fbfe --udp

       Use alsa:

           vdr-fbfe --audio alsa

       Use alsa (and specific card/sub-device):

           vdr-fbfe --audio alsa:plughw:1,1

       Framebuffer driver and device settings:

           vdf-fbfe --video DirectFB
           vdf-fbfe --video fb:/dev/fb/1
           vdf-fbfe --video vidixfb
           vdf-fbfe --video aadxr3


       If deinterlacing post plugin options are not  given  at  command  line,  deinterlacing  is
       controlled by VDR plugin configuration menu settings.

       De-interlacing  can  also  be  forced  on or off with command-line option "--post tvtime".

           vdr-fbfe --post tvtime:method=Linear,cheap_mode=1,pulldown=0,use_progressive_frame_flag=1
           vdr-fbfe --post tvtime:enable=0
