[vdr] Local frontend - using XBMC strm vs vdr-sxfe

i also have struggled for this holy grail
xbmc would really be the ideal interface for me (just cant beat this
flexibility - try playing a .bin / .img over a network which is .rar'd -
cant do this on vdr)
i like the xbmc plugins and flexibility, for the most part. :)
for last few months i've been trying xvdr, but i have to say i have mixed
feelings/results on this, and it's not very stable (from my experience)
the deprecated vnsiserver/client has fallen off the radar by now... not
many options other than streamdev/strm files.

i found i kept getting warnings about insufficient buffers with the setting

engine.buffers.video_num_frames:22

, so i bumped that up to 35

only other setting i'd suggest re-examining is the

engine.performance.memcpy_method:libc

at least on my system, kernel is faster. :)  autodetect should be fine for
this... ?
(it should test all of them)
