i managed the problem myself
i put winamp in the connection type and tada magic

but now i have another question
at this page someone explain how to set VDR to run with lcdproc
http://home.pages.at/bashy/lcd.html

it says to launch LCDd daemon with the launch of vdr:

Eintrag /usr/local/src/VDR/runvdr
# run lcd-daemon
LCDd -t 40x4 -d HD44780 "-p 0x378 -c winamp -v 2,2"

im ok with this after that its not clear anymore

=DCbergabe VDR
VDRPRG=3D"./vdr -L localhost -P 13666"

can someone tell me where to put this?
it seems that vdr has a patch to run with LCDd i installed it
is the last line is for lcdproc.conf ?
im confused about the fact that lcdproc is the only client that other=20
clients use to go to LCDd ? or every client properly patched can access=20=

LCDd?
thank you
