+.SH "DESCRIPTION"
+.sp
+\fBgstdvbbackend\fR gstdvbbackend is small program based on gstreamer\&. It captures a given set of dvb channels from one dvb device and provides the streams via minimal http\&.
+.SH "OPTIONS"
+.sp
+The following options can be passed to the \fBgstdvbbackend\fR daemon:
+.PP
+\fB\-D, \-\-nodaemonize\fR
+.RS 4
+This option instructs
+\fBgstdvbbackend\fR
+to run in foreground instead of becoming a daemon which is the default\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-u, \-\-username <username>\fR
+.RS 4
+run as this user\&. If no group is specified (\fB\-g\fR) the default group of the user is used\&. The default is to not drop privileges\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-g, \-\-groupname <groupname>\fR
+.RS 4
+run as this group\&. If no username is specified (\fB\-u\fR) this gets ignored\&. The default is to not drop privileges\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-C, \-\-chroot <path>\fR
+.RS 4
+Instruct
+\fBgstdvbbackend\fR
+to run in a chroot jail\&. The default is to not run in chroot\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-P, \-\-write\-pid <filename>\fR
+.RS 4
+Instruct
+\fBgstdvbbackend\fR
+to write it\(cqs pid to this file\&. The default is to not create a pid file\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-L, \-\-log <target>:<level>[,<param1>[,<param2>[\&.\&.]]]\fR
+.RS 4
+add log target to logging system\&. This can be invoked several times in order to log to different targets at the same time\&. Every target has its own log level which is a number between 0 and 5\&. Where 0 means disabling log and 5 means debug messages are enabled\&.
+
+The file target can be used more than once with different levels\&. If no target is provided at the command line a single target with the config
+\fBsyslog:3,gstdvbbackend,daemon\fR
+is added\&.
+
+The following targets are supported:
+.PP
+\fBsyslog\fR
+.RS 4
+log to syslog daemon, parameters <level>[,<logname>[,<facility>]]
+.RE
+.PP
+\fBfile\fR
+.RS 4
+log to file, parameters <level>[,<path>]
+.RE
+.PP
+\fBstdout\fR
+.RS 4
+log to standard output, parameters <level>
+.RE
+.PP
+\fBstderr\fR
+.RS 4
+log to standard error, parameters <level>
+.RE
+.RE
+.PP
+\fB\-U, \-\-debug\fR
+.RS 4
+This option instructs
+\fBgstdvbbackend\fR
+to run in debug mode\&. It implicits
+\fB\-D\fR
+(don\(cqt daemonize) and adds a log target with the configuration
+\fBstdout:5\fR
+(logging with maximum level)\&. In future releases there might be additional output when this option is supplied\&.
