After reading your mail I have tried yesterday again to use xcompmgr instead
of compiz for the hud osd without success. The osd doesn't show up. I think
my configuration can't be that wrong, as the hud osd is shown with compiz. Any
hints what I have to look for?

I use xineliboutput 1.0.3 on Intrepid Ibex with the nvidia x11 driver.
My xinitrc contains only calls to nvidia-settings for setting the blanking
interrupts and unclutter to let the mouse cursor disappear beside the
calls to compiz or xcompmgr. Is xcompmgr no replacement for compiz? Does
xcompmgr need something else?
