This looks like a perfect configuration. Should work. ;-)

Keyboard and remote control should be independent.

Let's try to simplify the configuration. Please test whether vdr can be
controlled using the keyboard if you do _not_ load the remote plugin.

I guess you saw the keymap of the remote plugin, not the keymap of the
keyboard: The remote plugin replaced your keymap because it wasn't
told to keep the pre-loaded keymap...
