That's what I have done. I've written a little script which is called 
from the XBMC scripts section. It basicly starts vdr-sxfe and kills 
xbmc. After exiting vdr-sxfe xbmc is started again. VDR is running in 
the background connected with my server in the basement through 
streamdev. This solution works very good for me.
