       zvbid - VBI proxy daemon


       zvbid [ options ]


       zvbid  is a proxy for VBI devices, i.e. it forwards one or more VBI data streams to one or
       more connected clients and manages channel change requests.


       -dev path
              Path of a device from which to read data.  This argument can be given several times
              with different devices.

       -buffers count
              Number of buffers to allocate for capturing VBI raw data from devices which support
              streaming (currently only video4linux, rev. 2)  A  higher  number  of  buffers  can
              prevent  data  loss  in  case  of  high  latency.  The  downside  is  higher memory
              consumption (typically 65kB per buffer.)  Default count is 8, maximum is 32.

              Daemon process remains connected to the terminal from which it was started (e.g. so
              that  you  can  stop it by pressing Control-C keys).  Intended for trouble shooting

       -kill  Terminates a proxy daemon running for the given device.

       -debug level
              Enables debug output: 0= off(default); 1= general messages; In addition  2,  4,  8,
              ... can be added to enable debug output for various categories.

       -syslog level
              Enables syslog output.

       -loglevel level
              Log file level

       -logfile path
              Path to the log file.

       -maxclients count
              Max. number of clients which are allowed to connect simultaneously.

       -help  Print a short description of all command line options.
