That's definitely the wrong attempt. You can't use debian packages as
starting point for Arch Linux packages. 

Maybe you want to contribute to vdr4arch -->

ArchVDR is not up-to-date and it doesn't take care of the rules in
Arch's DeveloperWiki. 
AUR is the most chaotic place you which exists in the Arch world. Most
of the PKGBUILDs there are in very bad condition.

There's no publicly accessible GIT/HG repository for VDR, but you have
the choice between stable versions (2.0.3) and developer versions
(2.1.1)
