This is exactly what I've been doing for the past few months. I'm using
xine for playback of the 001.vdr files. I miss the vdr-xine integration
but can still use the shell to delete old recordings.

I've had VDR setup for a few years with a DXR3 card so configuration was
done already. It would be tricky to setup from scratch like this.
