Once you load the modules, you can call mplayer to display a splash video, then
start vdr right after that.
Here is a snippet of my init.d script for vdr:
case "$1" in
if ! ps -C vdr > /dev/null 2>&1; then
echo -n "Starting $DESC: $NAME"
/usr/bin/mplayer -vo mpegpes /etc/vdr/VDRboot.mpeg 2>/dev/null
killall -q -TERM mplayer
./$DAEMON -v $VIDEO_DIR -E $EPG_DIR -c $CFG_DIR $OPTIONS \
