I use a fully updated yaVDR 0.4 and I don't have any issues with the
vdr-sxfe frontend.
For me, XBMC with the xvdr plugin seems to produce very ackward results and most
of the time I'm not able to watch anything because it's still
synchronizing the channels.

BTW, you do know that can play all kinds of media (including DVD's)
with vdr-sxfe right?
I use vdr-sxfe because it's one of the few frontends which allows
mediaplayback without
any additional plugins.

That'll never happen ^^
