I've moved to my production box and vdpau works there - looks like my 
development box video card won't support.

So xine-1.6.0, vdr-xine-0.9.3 and vdpau works - which is a move forward.

But VDR doesn't work as well as under xv.  It's slower changing channels and 
watching (SD) recordings freezes things for a few seconds.  Also, the 
quality is actually worse - during "action scenes" objects seem to be a bit 
jerky and have "lines" momentarily.  Only advantage, under vdpau the cpu 
sits at about 40%, where under xv it sits 50-70%.

Any thoughts?
