Peter's page is also in english, however I prefer this patch
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.vdr/24886

The xine plugin itself is really well commented, everything is in
english, you just have to carefully follow the steps outlined in the
INSTALL file.

The problem is you have to patch and compile xine (and patch the plugin
itself+the already patched xine if you want the network functionality).
Once that is done it works fairly well (with some occasional problem but
streamdev has its own set of problems).
I've used both and now I exclusively use vdr-xine over the network.
