Hello,

I am a big fan of Arte, and I would like to watch it in HD.

How could I avoid those errors which make me loose the sound and
have glitches ?

In my .xine/config I have :
audio.device.alsa_front_device:default
engine.performance.memcpy_method:libc
gui.dropped_frames_warning:0
gui.experience_level:Master of the known universe
gui.panel_visible:0
gui.panel_x:700
gui.panel_y:550
.version:2
video.processing.ffmpeg_choose_speed_over_accuracy:1
video.processing.ffmpeg_skip_loop_filter:all
video.processing.ffmpeg_thread_count:2

I use count 2 because I have a core 2 duo.

grep -i xine /etc/vdr/setup.conf
xine.autoPrimaryDeviceMode = autoPrimaryDeviceOn
xine.image16:9.zoomX = 100
xine.image16:9.zoomY = 100
xine.image4:3.zoomX = 100
xine.image4:3.zoomY = 100
xine.interactWithEitScannerMode = interactWithEitScannerOff
xine.modeLiveTV.monitoringDuration = 4
xine.modeLiveTV.monitoringMode = monitoringOnce
xine.modeLiveTV.prebufferFrames = 6
xine.modeLiveTV.prebufferHysteresis = 6
xine.muteMode = muteIgnore
xine.osdGammaCorrection = 123
xine.osdMode = osdBlendScaledHQ
xine.transparencyMode = transparencyOn
xine.volumeMode = volumeChangeHW

And I start xine with :

#!/bin/bash
killall xine > /dev/null &> /dev/null
killall -9 xine > /dev/null &> /dev/null
#XINE="xine -V xxmc -A alsa --no-logo --borderless --geometry +0+0 --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio -Dtvtime:method=Greedy2Frame,cheap_mode=0,pulldown=0,use_progressive_frame_flag=1"
XINE="xine -V xv -A alsa -f --no-logo --geometry +0+0 --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio -Dtvtime:method=Greedy2Frame,cheap_mode=0,pulldown=0,use_progressive_frame_flag=1"
VDR="vdr:/var/vdr/xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes"
#VDR="vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes"

if [ -z "$1" ]; then
        $XINE $VDR > /dev/null &> /dev/null &
else
        $XINE $1 > /dev/null &> /dev/null &
fi

sleep 4 && sudo renice -18 -p `pidof xine` > /dev/null &> /dev/null &

I have svn ffmpeg and hg xine-lib-1.2.

Thanks,
