You could try the vdr-xine (aka Xine Device) plugin on the local PC with
df_xine. xinefb might work as well. I use df_xine with a Matrox G450;
the only difference I can see between what you and I are trying to do is
that I use boxstar instead of mythtv. I had a similar problem with
df_xine producing a broken picture; the solution was to use '-l 0' to
force it to use the correct layer.

xineliboutput might still work alongside vdr-xine for remote viewing on
an X desktop. I'll have to try that.  Currently I just record anything I
want to watch remotely and play it back over NFS.

Another good reason to use xineliboutput instead of softdevice is that
xine is much better at A/V sync than softdevice IME.
