My installation is quite stable and I never get high cpu usage with VDPAU.
I have built both vdr-1.7.11 and XBMC (svn 27163) from source so I cannot
comment on the repo you refer to. I recommend you build XBMC from source.
Presuming you have built XBMC with logging enabled (default), make sure
you also enable logging in the setup dialog and check file xbmc.log for
Here is my setup in a little more detail, assuming you already have a
fully operational installation of vdr 1.7.11.
Download pvr-testing2 from svn:
svn checkout http://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xbmc/branches/pvr-testing2
Download vdr plugin streamdev cvs:
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs at vdr-developer.org:/var/cvsroot login
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs at vdr-developer.org:/var/cvsroot co streamdev
Find the patches in xbmc pvr-testing2:
Apply the patches to streamdev. Patch gives me lots of line offsets
but no errors.
'make plugins' in the vdr directory.
XBMC has a very high level of dependency but the configure script is helpful
and will tell you if a dependency is missing.
(fix anything reported missing and check the feature report on completion
of the script)
run xbmc without installation:
./xbmc.bin -l pathtoyourlircnode
