That's not a matter of vdr-xine but VDR. Currently, VDR supports only a 
setup like this:

            VDR Slave 1 --- xine 1
VDR Master
            VDR Slave 2 --- xine 2

VDR Master runs vdr-streamdev-server and VDR Slaves run 
vdr-streamdev-client + vdr-xine. All VDR instances run on the same 
computer and share the same recording directory. VDR Master provides 
access to all DVB devices and VDR Slaves take care of OSD and transfer 
mode for vdr-xine.

Remaing issues:
- VDR Slaves should ask VDR Master to do recordings.
- VDR Master should inform VDR Slaves of new recordings (touch .update).
