it tells xine to use the vdr plugin, and hands it the location of a pipe, 
which the vdr plugin creates when it starts....

no, the plugin will do that itself I think.

I think maybe you havent setup vdr.  you need to create a vdr channels.conf 
for it to work.  if you use the dvb-apps to create a channels.conf, use 
the -o vdr option to create a vdr compatible file, then put it in the /video 
directory and restart vdr.
