I also have the same setup - one VDR near the dish - in my case with 4 
DVB-devices and one VDR-box in the living room that I'm using as client.
I have mounted the "server" video-directory using NFS at the client.

I have some problems to get picture at the client sometimes - when it 
happens I have to switch channel until I get picture - then I can switch 
back to the channel I wanted to see. I'm also having to Hauppauge MVP's 
using vompserver that streams from the server and they always get 
picture so I think it has something with streamdev or xine to do?

I've been trying with that a little but I didn't really understand how 
it should work? It feels like that the video-dircetorys gets updated 
anyway? If I touch .update in the shared video-directory it just stays 
there - can anyone tell me how this works in the latest VDR-versions?
