     Hi!

I am looking for a best solution for live TV playback for VDR.
I have PC with Celeron 2.26 GHz, 512 MB RAM, nVidia FX 5200, SkyStar2
and software MPEG2 by xine (vdr-xine 0.7.9). PC is connected do
TV using SVideo TV-Out.

Now I'm using xxmc driver for xine (nVidia hardware acc.) - playback
is smooth, without jerking, but deinterlacing is low quality (both
OneField and BOB are not ideal solution). CPU usage is about 10%.

When I have tried xine xv driver with deinterlacing, picture was nice
- clear and sharp, but the playback jerking - mostly in sports programs.
CPU usage was about 30-40%

So both solutions are not perfect. Are there any other solution?
Maybe the xine should buffer some decomperessed frames? Are there any 
possibilities to set it?

Im afraid, that only FF card will work beter... If I will decide to buy 
one, which one to choose?

I have ony one PCI slot and one AGP slot (small barebone PC), so I can't
install dxr3 card...
