Well, I use xine -s vdr (autosearch the plugin called vdr). Just like I 
use -s dvd (autosearch the plugin called dvd). Then again, this is with 
vdr-xine downloaded when I last compiled VDR (1.3.43)... Works a treat.
I do, however, have a "sleep 2" in my script after starting VDR, before 
starting xine; I think it was because I was seeing just that error; VDR 
startup takes a moment, before vdr-xine gets to create the pipes in 
/tmp... And if the xine-half doesn't see the stuff in /tmp, you'll 
probably get an error like that one...
If a short gap between the two doesn't help, have a look through syslog, 
there might be something else up...
