Do you need to run gnome at all? Its quite processor intensive if all
you are doing is using it to watch TV. See the other recent thread on
starting VDR/xine at boot time using startx / replacing the session
manager and those problems with gnome screensaver won't be apparent.

Also, there is a later version (patch) of CoreAVC for xine that I
released on the list which will apply to the hg version of xine (with
a bit of tweaking with more recent versions). The updated version will
support channels at resolutions different to 1920x1080i (there are
quite a few of them).
