My VDR is one machine with several DVB devices and hardware replay.
As long as there is a way of having a good hardware replay, why
shouldn't I use it?

Why would software replay in my VDR change anyting regarding "separated
vdr-backend with multiple frontends capability"?

Besides, isn't there the streamdev plugin that provides signals
to other clients? I've never tried it myself, but I was under
the impression that this is what people use in such cases...
