This is a test box with no timers or other front ends, so the tuner isn't in 
use anywhere.
Above result happens no matter which channel I change to - 3 seconds of live 
TV then thread ends.

I've also tested using a FF card (so no xine front end) and still only 
getting 3 seconds of video.

Using vdr-xine, XINE logs, all I'm getting is:
vdr: osdflush: n: 3, 32.6, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 2, 20.2, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 1, 10.2, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 3, 33.6, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 3, 30.3, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 1, 10.2, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 1, 10.1, timeout: 0, result: 0
vdr: osdflush: n: 1, 10.1, timeout: 0, result: 0
