I was just going to ask on the xine-vdpau mailing list/irc since in my 
setup (i.e. my laptop) xine-vdpau works worse than xxmc: vdpau mostly 
works with the astra hd demo channel at 23.5E (though there's some minor 
color fluctuation) while it doesn't work at all with the bbc hd channel 
(heavy pixelation, stuttering and horizontal banding).
In both cases using xxmc the image is good, though sometimes there's 
some stuttering since the machine probably doesn't have enough 
horsepower (an Intel Core 2 Duo T9400). Anyway, it doesn't seem that 
using vdpau I have any less cpu usage.
I'm using it with vdr 1.7.0+h264 patches and the xine plugin.

Bye
