[vdr] start VDR without hardware for test and tutorial

VDR requires an output device to start.
But as already pointed out this doesn't necessarily have to be real 
hardware but could also be a plugin.

However, instead of using (and recommending) such a heavy-scale (from 
dependency and complexity perspective) plugin like xineliboutput, how 
about the dummydevice-plugin as output plugin?
or even the dynamite-plugin:
which starts as placeholder and enables later configuration of actual 
DVB devices.

Best regards,
