Anyone using VDR together with Freevo?

It assumes VDR is run headless in the background with softdevice or

xineliboutput or vdr-xine plugin...

When user selects VDR from Freevo menu it will just launch softdevice

frontend and disconnect Freevo from LIRC (via Freevo plugin).

When you close softdevice screen, it disconnects VDR from the LIRC (there

is a special SVDR command for it).

Probably something similar is used with XMBC.
