I would put the filename into the file tag, not the render tag. Also you need 
to keep in mind, that piave can not rely on kioslaves, so it is not valid to 
send actually urls to piave, but it is anyway reasonable to call the 
attribute url.

;-)  Well, fro my point of view the 'render' tag is redundant, since piave 
will send what ever is in the following scenelist to an outstream. piave is a 
renderer so to give it a tag 'render' is redundant, there is nothing else a 
renderer would do anyway ;-)   So stcking with your example I would suggest 
something like:

	<file url="some/url/to/file.dv">
 		<container format="rawdv" />

How does that sound?

Cheers, Rolf
