Hi,

Did some tests, without conclusive results so far.

Upgraded to xine-lib 1.2 from hg - same results (both for xine and
xinelibout).
Tried to compile softdevice 0.5, but it doesn't work with current ffmpeg
(also from SVN not long ago).
Tried softdevice from CVS, now it compiles, but crashes. I still prefer
external frontend, but want to know what cause the delay...
Compiled now 2.6.27.8 kernel with desktop preemptive model (I think it was
the default by th way) - same results.

VDR User, I will be mor than happy to see your .config to compare with mine,
maybe I've missed something.

My next step would be to move to 1.7.0, but I suspect it will not help since
Goga777 reports the same problem...

Goga, you're with S2API drivers, right? Halim and Morfsta, how about you?
VDR User doesn't use S2API drivers...
