Thanks for the suggestions. I'll add the buffers cmdline to my
vdr-sxfe startup. Interesting that you're using xvdr+tcp://localhost

Yeah its great having HD channels playing and recording. It just makes
me a little sad that XBMC playback of them is flawless, but with xine
we seem to have to settle for "only occasionally glitches" ?
