And this is oprofiler output

Profiling through timer interrupt

Please try appending "lapic" to the kernel command line.  The timer
interrupt is the last resort to use when the performance counters
are unavailable.
I have to test this out also.

Please compile softdevice and vdr with -g, or at the very least do not
strip them.  We're interested in the function names.
What do you mean by -g? Where does that option go? I must point out that I am quite a novice in linuxe still.
I suspended softdevice output from the settings but it made no change. Still after reboot vdr takes all cpu time.

I would suspect that you haven't set up TCP/IP networking before
starting vdr for the first time.
I did make a working linux box with all updates before even installing vdr.
Have you applied any patches to vdr?  I don't think that this is
affected by softdevice at all.
As I said in the first post (and some lines up) I set this box up by first installing FC6 and updating it. Then by using yum installed vdr and subtitles plugin. Then I downloaded vdr source and used it to compile softdevice because there is no ready made package for it. I downloaded also subtitles plugin to have vdr compiled as the yum installed version.
Somewhere in the middle I also installed DirectFB.
Now that I try to think afterwards what I did and when I am not sure about anything. I wanted to use yum to get all installed as easily as possible. Maybe I should get FF card and forget softdevice - its much easier :) Thats how I have my other vdr box.
Maybe I'll start from the scratch and install everything in right order.

I made a test and recompiled vdr and plugins and put starting command in rc.local. Now it starts ok and cpu load is about 60%. But if I let FC6 initscript start vdr I get 99%cpu load on startup.
