It needs one 'output device', yes.

You can actually just install the streamdev-server as that's a valid output
device - of course you won't be able to get any pretty OSD aside from using
the text - console one (is this related to the 'skincurses' plugin, anyone? I
only use a real OSD with LIRC...), but it should at least satisfy VDR's
output-device requirement.. then point mplayer at
Personally I use a full DVB card and have not touched the software decoders
for many months, so any advice I could give would likely be woefully out of
date. Does the xine plugin still need its own tarball-compiled-from-source or
can it use a normal release version?
