My problem is that vdr and remote plugin wont configure at statup.

I explain better:
Fresh install, I copy *.conf file from vdr source dir to video dir.
There is no remote.conf file.
I start vdr from vdr-source dir with this comman: "./vdr 
-P"xinelibpouput -p" -P"remote -i /dev/input/eventX"
where eventX is the device i want to use to control my remote.

Vdr start but let me see only a black screen with "no signal"

No remote.conf created.

If I copy the remote.conf from xineliboutput's wiki, vdr let me use 
keyboard if I start without remote plugin.
If I start with remote plugin vdr let me see only no-signal.
Last night even without remote plugin, vdr did not want to let me see tv.
