Hi Marko,

have you tried the xineliboutput plugin together with vdr-sxfe on the headless
box? It basically gives you a remote VDR display including the OSD. The
downside is, the DVD needs to be in the VDR PC in the different room... which
may not be what you want. 

(And yes, a simple headless solution that can access the headless VDR player's DVD
or Blu-Ray drive would be nifty ... NBD comes to my mind.)
