Look at yavdr, it provides that but the other way around and for me
that is preferable as we watch TV / recordings much more than using
XBMC to listen to music or watch videos.

You use vanilla VDR as the base, then when you need XBMC you call it
either via the desktop/mouse or via the VDR menu
(Applications/Media/XBMC). When you exit XBMC it seamlessly goes back
into VDR.

I found that remote control and sound (including AC3 and DTS) work
seamlessly out of the box now with the latest version.
