[vdr] Few basic VDR questions

Hi everyone,

I am new to VDR, but I have tried my best to do research before asking these questions.

1.  Does VDR work with any DVB card supported by the Linux-DVB kernel drivers?

2.  My DVB device will not have any TV-out hardware.  

With VDR, can I utilize the TV-out built into my video card for playback, OSD, etc or do I need a third-party front-end such as "kvdr" ?

My video chipset's TV-out is supported by XOrg and I do have Xv support.

3.  Is there anyone who has used the vdr add-on "noad" (http://www.freepgs.com/noad/README.en.html) succesfully in the US/North America?  How well does it work?

Thanks in advance.
