Let your DVB-Cards in your vdr box and stream to the Ion box either by
using a vdr instance on both boxes and use streamdev between them, or
having only a vdr instance on the ion box and use vtuner to stream
directly from the DVB cards on the vdr box to the ion box.

Currently I am testing vtuner on a Seagate Dockstar with 2 sundtek DVB-C
USB sticks that is streaming to a Zotac HD-ID 40. It is promising.
