Your TV screen and a keyboard that are connected to a VDR box are building a terminal. With this terminal you can manage several consoles.
In the OSD of VDR you can open as many consoles as you want. In each console you can start a program that runs in the background. Your inputs to the keyboard are redirected to the current selected console as well as the output that these programs generate are redirected into the OSD.
With this setup you can look after some things that you want to know but have no entry in the commands.conf file for that without the necessarity to connect a monitor to your box or make a network connection from an other computer with telnet or ssh.
Also you can run longer tasks such as converting a movie and you won't VDR to
shutdown itself until the conversion is completed.
Note: This feature is not implemented up to now because of the lack in the plugin interface.
