I volunteered to try to implement this thing to vdr-xine (and remove fifo 
handling completely if speed allows it). I have to say I underestimated 
the complexity of the vdr-xine Plugin (especially the full-featured-device 
emulation). Implementing would be not so hard, but it should be 
maintainable afterwards and thus one has to pay attention to good 
code style and reusability.

On the other hand developing an open source project without a public 
version control system is very uncomfortable, at least for me.

Currently I stuck in another project (besides work), when it can be 
understand as completed, I plan to invest time to have a deeper look into 
vdr-xine (and maybe we have a vdr-xine CVS then :) ).

best regards,
