My config is very similar.  Is your setup twinview or is it set as two
separate displays (0.0 and 0.1?).

It should be set as two separate displays -- then start VDR like this:

DISPLAY=:0.1;xset s off;/data/src/vdr/vdr -P"softdevice -ao
alsa:plughw:1,0 -vo xv:full" -Pfemon -Pyaepg

I have two audio cards as well, thats why I specify the audio device
here too.

Hope it helps.
