I know, I am currently working on the plugin and have already fixed several
issues. I still have some work to do, but I expect the next version to be
released during the next two weeks.

vdr-xine will work, but (when the MHP plugin is more mature) you won't have
all the possibilities offered by your setup:
Currently, the output in encoded to MPEG-1 and then played via a standard VDR
player. While for FF-card and DXR3 systems this is the only way to go, for
all systems doing software MPEG-2 decoding this is grossly inefficient and
wasteful of resources (but it still works!).
For these systems, one would have to build a direct bridge to the output
system (xine in your case) to avoid unnecessary encoding-decoding.
This holds for all flavors of Xine-output and softdevice.
Unfortunately, I cannot run these systems on my VDR machine, therefore I
cannot test such direct access, therefore I cannot write it.
If anyone is interested to help, I will offer any support necessary.
