Obviously, you seem to have never actually tried VDR. It's extremely  
lean and clean and it don't need to run with any output. You can  
telnet into it and schedule recordings and it's easy to view  
recordings over NFS, or use a streaming media client directly towards  
VDR with a suitable streaming plugin.
