Concerning vdr-xine, I'd recommend the following:

dvbplayer3 (highly recommended)
fixes VDR's recording replayer to send proper I-frames to a device. 
Without this patch it is very likely that incomplete I-frames are sent
and therefore many I-frames will not be displayed by devices like
vdr-xine or dxr3. This patch has a very positive effect on moving
cutting marks and all fast trickspeed modes as well as slow motion

NOTE: without this patch it is likely that xine disconnects from
       vdr-xine while moving cut marks.
