No, not at all, always still pictures that was seen before.

Only with channel changes here, and only with the option "software
scaling" set to true in xineliboutput.

I didn't have the feeling that it get worse, it seems to be stable.

Okay, I don't use HDMI audio, because my receiver is too old for this
and I am even not sure currently whether my Plasma supports HDMI Audio,
will test next chance.
Yesterday I have switched back to the use of vdpau, because I got now
periodically hick ups with xv and xxmc, the last time I had this working
correct I had another CPU, mainboard and nvdida driver :(. The loss of
sync is less disturbing than this periodically stops of motion.
Will soon try the r167 release of the vdpau patch.
