It is definitly not VDR itself, but rather one of the plugins. My VDR
(1.7.15) with several Plugins (skinenigmang,femon,streamdev-server,xine)
consumes less than 1% CPU when idle (but tuned to a valid station), and
less than 5% when a xine client is connected (HD Channel!)

CPU is a Core 2 6600 (2.4 Ghz)
