Here I don't have analog tv nor analog tvout, but I have 2 dvb-s
cards.

For me the perfect solution would be a mix of xine+net and streamdev.
Ideally vdr-xine (+ network) would allow several clients to connect
independently.
It would use multicast to send the video and use tcp to get command
from the client.

I could run 2 vdr processes and have a vdr-xine+network per vdr. but it's
not handy on the client side. (sure, there're always solutions...)
(either 1 dvb card per vdr, or the 2 cards for the 1st vdr and the 2nd
vdr connected to the first with streamdev vtp)

There might be constraints in vdr or/and vdr-xine not allowing this
more easily, i'm don't really know.
I guess vdr 1.5 could be even more modular ! :)
