[vdr] softdevice + directfb gives black screen [SOLVED]

I have patched the file and recompiled. SetLevel() error is gone but same 
behaviour.

I think I really found the issue by now. I can run mplayer and dfbshow via 
ssh but not VDR. VDR does only work when I start it from the console.

Is there a way to trick VDR, or ie. softdevice+directfb, to be run via ssh 
login?
