[vdr] vdr: no signal

I've got vdr installed according to
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/vdr-guide.xml with lib-xine as a
frontend. I've also got a working dvb config which I can tell from the
fact that everything works in Kaffeine.
Now, what I see running vdr-sxfe xvdr://localhost is just a black
screen with a 'No Signal' message. No evidence of onscreen menu
whatsoever. vdr won't react to keyboard keys pressed and 'Switch to
your output screen and follow the on-screen instructions.' is not a
valid instruction as there's no menu. Here's vdr-related part of

Exactly the same behavior is observed w/o -sc plugin. Has anyone got a
clue on what might be wrong? I'm stuck. TIA.
