Yes, using softdevice, xine, xineliboutput or a dxr3. You should look at
these plugins to see which one is more suitable to you.

>That is also okay by me. Which card do you recommend?

It all depends on what you need, prefer, have available.
Me, I'm using a skystar 2 and a dxr3. I'm also using the xine plugin for
remote viewing (i.e. viewing tv on my laptop).

That's not (officially) possible with a budget card.

Well, I bought both the skystar2 and the dxr3 on ebay. IIRC ~40€ for a
new skystar2 (plus shipping) and 10€ for a second hand dxr3.
Using softdevice or xine you can use vdr with just a budget card.
