- Elisa Viihde; the login and username shall be configured in the setup menu

- Libcurl - the multiprotocol file transfer library

- Jansson - a C library for encoding, decoding and manipulating JSON data


The Elvis plugin allows Elisa Viihde users to manage and watch their NPVR
recordings, timers and search timers via VDR's familiar user interface.
The plugin uses a separate 'elvis.conf' configuration file to store


tar -xzf /put/your/path/here/vdr-elvis-X.Y.Z.tgz
make -C elvis-X.Y.Z install


- Remember to add a correct username and password via the setup menu
  or directly editing the 'elvis.conf' configuration file before using
  the plugin! Otherwise the main menu entry isn't visible.

- Password is currently stored unencrypted and shown in the setup menu.

- All menu contents are downloaded on background and OSD is updated only
  on demand. Therefore menus are empty for a few seconds after accessing
  them at first time.

- The menu content can be synchronized with the server by pressing the
  '5' key at any time.
