Yes, I setup vdr-skinsoppalusikka, but I had to set the video in
xineliboutput to auto, not xvmc directly (can't remember off hand), by
setting it to xvmc only, the colours are incorrect. The one that does work
is xvmc+... will have to look it up when I get home.

What I do find odd is, that my idle shows 91%, but vdr uses 17% cpu usage
and this is on an old Pentium 4, 2.4GHz. So I'm not sure how that works.
