Hello,

Hmm, mine look different from all your examples.

This is the pink, incorrect display:
http://spork.qfe3.net/~chris/vdr/snapshot4.png

When changing to this channel, vdr says:
Aug  7 04:12:57 media vdr: [1191] [VideoOut]: 720x576 [90,0 540x576] -> 1024x768 [128,0 768x768]


This is a correct display:
http://spork.qfe3.net/~chris/vdr/snapshot5.png

And when changing to this channel, vdr says:
Aug  7 04:13:29 media vdr: [1197] [VideoOut]: 720x576 [0,0 720x576] -> 1024x768 [0,0 1024x768]


Another incorrect:
http://spork.qfe3.net/~chris/vdr/snapshot6.png

And the log:
Aug  7 04:14:35 media vdr: [1216] [VideoOut]: 704x576 [0,0 704x576] -> 1024x768 [0,0 1024x768]


Screenshots were made with ksnapshot. The only correlation I can make
so far is that lower resolutions seem to present the problem?

I have to use softdevice with software alpha blending; if I use
pseudo, it only appears for one frame every second. I'm having trouble
getting xineliboutput to build so I can test it.
