Afaik this would run only the frontend under a chroot environment.
The filebrowser of the mediaplayer runs not inside the chroot.
So it doesn't restrict the filebrowser of the mediaplayer.

Sorry if my question was not understood currectly.
I don't want to run sxfe/vdr etc under a chroot env.
My concerns are about the build-in filebrowser of xineliboutput. 
It should be restricted to a special folder like /media.
This whould avoid damages to the system  :-).
More ideas?
