I have found a solution. When I set "Get primary device when xine connects:
Yes", then I do not have to change PrimaryDVB at all.  Xine just makes itself
primary when connecting automatically. This eliminates the error message
completely because VDR starts up in hardware mode, then turns into softmode when
xine is started.  When xine is closed, VDR automatically goes back into hardware

Best Regards.
