It's from a tarball,
-rwxr-xr-x    1 2009     2009         3556 Nov 23  2004 uc_overlay.h

I will give CVS a try to get it all up to date. Anyway, I finally got it 
working! I'm now using:

modprobe viafb mode=800x600 bpp=32 refresh=60 TVon=0

directfbrc:
mode = 800x600
pixelformat = ARGB
disable-module=cle266

I'm not sure if it's the TVon=0 that does it becuase I was able to run 
mplayer with -vo directfb when vdr+softdevice did not work. What is this 
disable-module good for? If I had configured with --with-gfxdrivers=unichrome 
only, will it work then. What I'm actually asking is - What's the difference 
between unichrome and cle266? ( In DirectFB's perspective )

Thanks,
