What card are you using for H264/HDTV viewing and what does VDR tell you
when you select the channel? does it give an error?

It looks like if xine-lib is using the internal ffmpeg viewer. Anyway, I
used the following tutorials on my Ubuntu 8.04 config with S2-3200:

Be sure to get the latest ffmpeg repository and compile it from source.
The latest editions have had some great new h264 related optimalisations.
