It freezes eventually with every software combination i have used (very 
infrequently at best).

Workaround is to kill frontend with remote and irexec. I run frontend in 
loop, so it starts again in 2 sec.

/etc/lircrc:
begin
	remote = origen
	button = Record
	prog   = irexec
	repeat = 0
	config = killall -9 vdr-sxfe
end

vdr-sxfe.sh:
#!/bin/bash
while true; do
	vdr-sxfe --options..
	if test $? -eq 0 -o $? -eq 2; then
		exit
	fi
	/bin/sleep 2
done
