I am using a PCH-A110 device with vdr-ui running on a separate server 
(for better integration). Channels are served using the standard 
streamdev plugin.
The only drawback is the necessity to quit (close) the running stream 
and go back to the vdr-ui selection page each time you want to change to 
another channel.

I have managed to build a jsp playlist with all VDR channels, but 
channel change is not quick enough to bring a good `surfing` experience 
with this method.

Using xineliboutput you can watch the `live` stream and change channel 
without quitting the player but the mono pmt parser fails sometime to 
get the new pids (tested with soft and hard demuxerm. m2ts and pes 
container). I am convinced that this is the best way to have an 
acceptable switching time between 2 channels reusing existing player 
with low key/remote dev (directfb keyb app to redirect remote key to VDR 
app).
