not with vdr-xine, you have to use xineliboutput. (and the 3 clients
will have to watch the same channel)
If you look at an independant way to watch different channel+osd
you'll have to use one vdr+streamdev_server and 2 vdr+streamdev_client.
(three of them with vdr-xine/xineliboutput).
Or use vdr-xine/xinelibouput + 2 video players using streamdev as http

I hope next vdr (1.5) objetives will be to handle extensively:
- multiple dvb cards/sources
- regroup similar channels with priorities
- multiple frontends watching differents channels (multiple osd,
  global recordings/timers, ....)
