I tried this install - got it all installed, and its being called up by 
vdr-sxfe but I'm not getting anything on the screen!  I hear audio but 
no video?  Any suggestions what might be going on here?  I see the error 
failed to open broadcom Crystal HD but then further down it seems to be 
utilizing it?
