There was a lecture on VDR Camp 2008 about xeatre. From what I remember,
this system targets on-air digital TV archiving, and not just only for a
broadcasters own channels, but also to monitor concurrent broadcasters,
or to verify advertising placement (even finds certain ads by itself).
The VDR backend is just for recording, while the instant access of
archived broadcasts and live TV is done by web browser and video
streaming, including automatic splitting to individual broadcasts and
easy exporting to DVD.
