Right - some nice info. But the vga-sync-fields patch now voids some 
statements. It's no longer true that softdecoders must sync to the graphics
card. In our case it's the other way round. As it should be.

The patch of course is for PAL at 50Hz though NTSC should also be possible.

In the meantime I issued a few more releases of the vga-sync-fields patch. 
Version vga-sync-fields-0.0.7 together with xineliboutput Version 1.0.1 or 
newer and parameter setting

xineliboutput.Advanced.LiveModeSync = 0

give very good results for both viewing recordings and Live-TV. The system is
already productive here. I will describe the new setup in my next release.
