[vdr] Xine and DEBUG_OSD problems

Hi.  I'm making progress on getting VDR working the way I want.  

There's a colleague at work who uses the xine plugin for replay, and the DEBUG_OSD screen to remotely control vdr via ssh.  This is kind of what I want to do, but have 2 problems.


1) Xine-plugin still doesn't work.  
-Xine DOES work directly with the DVB (i.e. can watch DVB channels), but not with VDR.  
-The VDR buttons are visable on the Xine Keymap editor (so I guess the xine-ui compile must have worked)
-I can see vdr drivers being loaded when I start 'xine --verbose=2'  (so I assume the xine-lib was also successful)

When I try and open 'xine -p vdr:///fifty/video/plugins/xine/noSignal.pes'  Xine says unknown mrl: vdr://
Same if I just try 'xine -p vdr://'

Does this sounds like the xine-lib is still broken?  Or am I trying to use VDR the wrong way.




2) In an attempt to get VDR DEBUG_OSD working, I recompiled vdr-1.3.21 with the following in the Makefile:
ifdef DEBUG_OSD
DEFINES += -DDEBUG_OSD
NCURSESLIB = -lncurses
endif

When I try to start './vdr'  or  './vdr -Pxine'  nothing happens on the command prompt.  I expected the ASCII debug OSD to start.  /var/log/messages says :

I'm so close I can feel it!
