NAME

       zvbid - VBI proxy daemon

SYNOPSIS

       zvbid [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

       -nodetach
              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
              only.

       -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.
