Nice. It almost certainly does support WSS.

The quality of a composite signal is pretty poor (esp at 42"). If I was 
you i'd start trying to get one of the VGA/DVI/HDMI inputs connected to 
the graphics card. Not only will the quality be much better but you'll 
also be able to use it for other things as well. As for VDR, you need to 
start using something which allows you to send the video to your 
graphics card, for example:

xine plugin - http://home.vr-web.de/~rnissl/vdr-xine-0.7.5.tgz
softdevice - http://softdevice.berlios.de/
