lt's been a while, but last time I used this feature (with vdradmin) I did 

used a budget card (terratec cinergy 1200)
used vdr 1.3.3x with x < 5
used xine plugin
actually ran xine
installed some additional tools (mjpegtools, and some video format converting 

since running xine all the time meant burning a lot of cpu power, I stopped 
using GRAB :-(
