I think it's worth using your ubuntu system to get to the vdr interface 
every now and then..

Which ubuntu are you using?

I had to download and compile xine-lib (for multiple audio streams to 
work), vdr-1.4.5 (for the development environment) and xineliboutput, 
then compiled xinelibout to run as a frontend.

(if you want, I can pack my compiled archives up of these environments 
and let you just run make install on them..)

vdr-sxfe xvdr://vdrserver works to get me a vdr interface and picture. 
You can even use a remote with it - very nice for watching tv from the bed.

On the server side, compile xineliboutput but don't run a local 
frontend, allow remote connections.

For windows, I found the vompclient excellent, although no support yet 
for multiple audio streams.  Although it won't solve the problem here of 
testing the signal level.
