Please search for `dpkg-buildpackage` on the WWW. It should work the
following way (from memory and not tested).

        $ apt-get source vdr # name of your VDR package
        $ cd vdr-1.6… # directory with the sources should be vdr-versionnumber
        $ # apply the patch
        $ dch -v1.6.0-1-patched1 Unoffial release with dxr3 subtitles patch # adapt version accordingly, dch from devscripts package, `man dch` for questions
        $ dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
        $ sudo dpkg -i ../vdr*.deb # Choose the correct packages.
