PCI-e based videocard;
2. Using plugins like vdr-xine and/or xineliboutput you have buffering
time which is annoying for zap speeds on encrypted channels.
Currently I use the Reel-VDR fork and it seems to work quite nicely. And
it doesn't require many patches to get it working, only some S2API based
