Do you have a 'full-featured' card (with TV out and mpeg decoder) or a 
'budget' card (without TV-out)?

right here there should be lines "loading plugin: xxxx". Are you sure 
you actually load these plugins on command line?

VDR could not find any full-featured card for output, and since no 
output plugins were loaded, VDR has nothing to display on.

Check your /var/log/messages around boot time, there should be messages 
related to DVB card detection.
