The xineliboutput plugin connects its remote clients by generic RTSP 
multicast streaming, and can be used by other stream receivers too. 
Configured correctly, this would mean that the client takes over the VDR 
primary device on demand. However I don't think that the OSD will be 
displayed on generic devices.

If you want an independent stream frontend, you can start an invisible 
second VDR with streamdev client and remote xineliboutput.
