I'll do! But I hope we both get a pointer in the correct direction here!

Here it's an "old" P4 with 2.0 GHz. It's at 40-50% with softdevice, so maybe 
your hardware is a bit too slow for softdevice?

If you have the softdevice source code laying arround, you can have a look in 
that, especially 'video-dfb.c'. Search for 'setupStore->useMGAtv'. There are 
some if-constructs in there using this variable where some DirectFB settings 
(and maybe some other settings, haven't looked this closely) are set.
