Scratch that, I now see it's part of the extension patch.
Per chance does the livebuffer patch reintroduce the thread that 
vdr-1.7.1 eliminated?
That might explain the stuttering with vdr-xine, but not the black 
screen with the dxr3, though the message from Martin Dauskardt 
announcing the pvr350-plugin could also be valid for the dxr3:

"Attention: The plugin does not work properly with vdr 1.7.1:
vdr now simply strips the TS headers and sends the payload to the usual
PlayVideo() and PlayAudio() functions. The PES packets have no longer a 
of 2kB, and the PES audio ID is always 0. The pvr350 hardware decoder 
the ivtv driver cannot handle this. We would need a lot of additional 
code -
time will see ..."
