Do you use identical configurations for xine-ui and xineliboutput? I 
mean the ones in your ~/.xine directory. What are those like?

Do you use vdr-sxfe, vdr-fbfe or local frontend with xineliboutput? Have 
you tried other frontends like VLC or mplayer?

Have you tried increasing the output of vdr-sxfe (or your frontend of 
choice)?

What versions of xine-lib and xineliboutput are you using?

How do you start the frontend, VDR and other players you have tested? Do 
you for example always use the same audio driver?


Please try to gather all the necessary information... that way it is 
easier for others to help you.
