Hhm, I do not see such an issue. I use a GeForce 6600GT with NVidia 
driver version 8174, using xine's output driver xv. My system is 
equipped with a P4 2.8 GHz HT CPU. I run debug builds of VDR and xine, 
so my load my be a bit higher than with regular builds.

With the deinterlacer enabled (as specified in MANUAL), I have a CPU 
load of about 15-20 %. Although the CPU load is not too high, xine still 
gives me a lot of these messages

video_out: Verwerfe Bild mit pts 246538, weil es zu alt ist 
(Unterschied: 1982).

When I disable the deinterlacer, CPU load drops to 7-10% and the above 
messages no longer appear.

I must admit, I never had those messages in the past although I had a 
much higher CPU load. But recently I replaced my P-ATA drive by a S-ATA 
one to get the P-ATA drive repaired.

And it looks like I have this issue (and lost TS packets, too) since the 
time when I replaced the drive (I didn't have any S-ATA drive before in 
this system).

I use an ext3 file system with a commit interval of 5 seconds. gkrellm 
shows me a disc access every 5 seconds, but I still haven't checked 
whether there is anything to commit. So I still hope that things improve 
when I get my drive back.

BTW: SUSE 10, kernel-smp-2.6.13-15.8
