Has someone had success with XvMC? Video decoding, even 1080i HDTV promo 
channels from Astra, works with very low CPU load but I get no VDR OSD 
and I think aspect ratio for 16:9 video is wrong. XvMC driver is from 
Nvidia 7676, vdr, vdr-xine, etc. are latest versions. X desktop size is 

The same systems runs nicely with Xv output method but there is a little 
bit too little power to run a good deinterlacer such GreedyH without 
cheap mode for HDTV. It would be also nice to have automatic separate 
deinterlacer configurations for SDTV and HDTV but I belive that goes out 
of scope of vdr-xine plugin, right?
