Sorry, I can't help you with that.

No. VDR needs an output device. The Nexus' MPEG-2 decoder can be used as a 
output device which is connected to a TV set or alike.
On the other hand, the VP1020 is a budget card that has no MPEG-2 decoder on 
board. So you need vdr-xine (for decoding MPEG-2 in software and displaying 
to a monitor) only when there's no active card in the system.

In your case, there is. Channels received by the budget card will be decoded 
and displayed by the Nexus. Applications like kvdr and xawtv can be used to 
have the Nexus' video output on screen, too.

So essentially, it doesn't matter what DVB card provides a channel (you could 
even stream them via network from another VDR box), the video will always go 
to the Nexus.
