You probably should ask this also in the linux-sunxi mailling list. 
While I cannot answer all questions for you, I can tell you that video 
decoding could be problematic for now. The A10 has a proprietary video 
decoder for HD stuff. There is support for XBMC from empat0 and someone 
is working on vlc +libcedarx support, but that's it. VDR can use xine 
amongst other softpipes and that is not supported yet to my knowledge. 
VDR backend with XBMC frontend however could work. Your DVB device has 
kernel support and should be compilable.
