This isn't a step-by-step guide, just an outline:

- create an /etc/init.d/webpvr startup script (look at
/etc/init.d/skeleton and the other files in that directory). You'll need
to fork the web-pvr process off into the background, because that script
must exit. Ideally it should be able to stop the web-pvr too.

- use update-rc.d to set that script to be run at startup.

# update-rc.d webpvr defaults
