Is it happening for you both with S and S2 channels?
Many people including me have noticed corrupted image problems with 
xineliboutput with commercial ATI drivers. (I tested myself last time 
about 2 months ago)

A workaround was to switch to console ctrl+alt+1 and then back to X with
ctrl+alt+7.

To get things really workign without problems I switched to radeonhd 
drivers.

I have myself using vdr 1.6.0 as I had problems to get dvb-t channels to 
work with S2API patched vdr-1.7.0 and have only tested S2 from command 
line with a combination of following:

1) channels.conf
arteHD:11361:hC23M5O35S1:S19.2E:22000:6210:6230:0:11120:1:1011:0
2) ./szap-s2 -a 1 -S 2 -c channels.conf artehd
3) dvbstream -c 1 8192 -o > test3.mpg
4) vlc test3.mpg
