This is not the way it is expected to be used ;-)

Adding --verbose=2 to running xine will show something like that:

         mrl: 'vdr:///soft/vdr/etc/vdr/plugins/xine/noSignal.pes',
         sub 'NONE',
         start_pos 0, start_time 0, av_offset 0, spu_offset 0.
xine: Inputplugin gefunden: VDR display device plugin
vdr: failed to open 
'///soft/vdr/etc/vdr/plugins/xine/noSignal.pes.control' (Datei oder 
Verzeichnisnicht gefunden)
xine: Plugin kann MRL 
[vdr:///soft/vdr/etc/vdr/plugins/xine/noSignal.pes] nicht öffnen
xine: Kann kein Plugin für MRL 
[vdr:///soft/vdr/etc/vdr/plugins/xine/noSignal.pes] finden

It bails out as the input plugin vdr expects several files with names 
derived from the given argument (e. g. in the above case 

> You don't have a patched xine-lib - apply the patch in vdr-xine and rebuild.

A previous post shows:
xine --verbose=2
load_plugins: plugin 
/usr/local/lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/post/xineplug_post_vdr.so found
load_plugins: plugin 
/usr/local/lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_inp_vdr.so found

Anyway, just try:

	xine vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
