The next vdr-xine release will support it. You may want to try the attached patch for VDR-1.5.x, which prepares cRemux for H.264 (most likely one of the next VDR releases will contain this patch). After that you should be able to record such channels. Be aware that channels.conf may nolonger be compatible with non patched VDR versions.

The recordings should already be playable with xine-lib-1.1.7:

        xine .../001.vdr#demux:mpeg_pes

Be aware that xine-lib's H.264 support is based on ffmpeg and there are known issues with interlaced material. So it is likely that xine will crash.

In case you are able to create a recording, would you please be so kind and provide me a sample for testing.
