Why should it depend on VDR? The only reason when VDPAU would be used, is in combination with software based device output plugins like the xine & xineliboutput. As soon as Xine supports VDPAU, then the VDR with the plugins *should* support it as well.
For other (read: hardware) output devices, VDPAU isn't used at all.
And from my point of view, MythTV is still not as accesible compared too for instance Mediaportal or Microsoft MCE. IMHO, the best combo is still VDR for DVB viewing in combination with XBMC for multimedia viewing. But then again, this is my oppinion :-)
