Yes: I enabled the local loop (127.0.0.1) and all my network (192.168.1.0).
Still, I get connection lost

Hmm not sure then, you have any software firewall or anything enabled ?
tail -f the vdr log while you attempt your connection from xbmc and see what's reported in there.

The streamdev server runs well: I can connect to it via firefox, like this
By the way, nothing is reported in /var/log/messages

@dongioia: Please check the xbmc logfile in your xbmc profile folder.

@dongioia : Not sure, but I believe XBMC connects to the vdr to vdr server on port 2004, not the http server port 3000. Is your vdr to vdr server started ? Is your setting in xbmc on port 2004 ?

There was something wrong with my vdr streamdev server. I installed the packages from Gerald's repos and everything went just fine. I must figure out the differences beacuse I use plugins non distribuited via ppa repos. Probably the key is within the patches.

This is going to be really awesome when all of the bugs are worked out and it's merged into trunk.
A few observations:
Sometimes, after zapping a few times, I get "channel not available". It works again after restarting XBMC.
It crashes when I try to play a recording.
Standard def works great, but high def (720p+) stutters severely and audio gets way out of sync with video. I'm using VDPAU as the video renderer and HD videos play just fine in XBMC.
My setup is vdr-1.6.0 (gda) with an ATSC card. XBMC is the latest from hepi's PPA.

Two VDR-enthusiasts from vdr-portal.de (hotzenplotz5 and gda) offer Launchpad PPA's with VDR packages and VDR-plugins for upcoming Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic). During the last two weeks, three new PPA's were created and things might get a bit confusing to understand for those people who didn't follow all the lenghtly discussions on vdr-portal.de.
The latest PPA (https://launchpad.net/~the-vdr-team/+archive/vdr-ubuntu-karmic) is basically a cooperation between hotzenplotz5 and gda where they share their packages.
Because of the increasing amount of concurrent PPA's, I have created a comparison list which shows the contents of the different PPA's next to each other. If you are interested, it can be found here.

Some weeks ago i tried to install VDR, but since i'm fairly new to linux i failed. Managed to get around in linux but compiling VDR, Xine, etc, etc made me mess up my ubuntu config so i gave up
Now i'm reading positive news about PPA's ready to install! Now i'm still a bit confused and was hoping one of you could advice me which package suits me best.
I'm running and E8400 Core 2 Duo with and Technotrend DVB-C Budget C-1501 PCI-card.
My goal to watch H264 HD-Channels (i1080) and SD channels which are both encrypted with irdeto 2. For that i would like to run a Cccam or NewCS cardserver. Currently i have got an working NewCS but i can also manage a Cccam solution.
So, to conclude, which packages would allow me to use my DVB-C with softcam solution for xbmc?
Ps. Maybe someone would like to write a new small tutorial describing the 'easy-method'. A small list of what to install in which order would be helpfull aswell, how to install i can figure out i guess.
Thanks in advance!

AFAIK none of the PPA owners from vdr-portal.de mentioned above are interested or willing to include SC-solutions in their repositories. (Please read my discussion with mirak earlier this year in this thread for further infos.)
