Yeh, for separate UIs - independent clients, you'd need a single backend
which has the DVB cards, and a series of 'frontend' VDRs (even on the
same PC) which each export a UI .. and then use streamdev to shuffle
video data. I never trusted streamdev as a reliable plugin for a long
time, but it now appears to be quite robust and still under active
Of course sharing recordings / timers adds the usual levels of
complexity, but I don't forsee VDR becoming a full client/server
architecture any time soon so it's likely the best solution for some
