    Does that mean that it's not somewhat competitive with MythTV? But eh, I generally like how MythTV works already. The integration into XBMC Frodo is pretty good, too, even if it still has a few issues to iron out.

    In which matter ? The architecture is different in a lot of ways. In my opinion I don't know if mythtv is competitive in any way, but I don't think so. Surely this is a point of view question

    Many of the mentioned features are working for some years, vdr only missed a stable release so far. VDR also integrates very well with XBMC via the vnsi plugin for xbmc. The development is working on that one for years, long before live-tv went into xbmc main trunk.

    Added support for DVB cards with multiple fontends. Note that this only works for DVB cards where each frontend can be used independently of all the others on the same adapter.
    I have already lost any hope for a proper support for Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-4000. Kernel devs don't bother to port driver to the newer DVB API and VDR devs won't support it because there is this new api.

    That's good to know.
