I'm not convinced xineliboutput is the most used output by far, or
even at all.  Of the VDR users I talk to, vdr-xine is the easy
majority.  But regardless what's used, I don't think it's fair to say
VDR isn't fully ready for HD when it's the output devices that are the
problem.  I've only used vdr-xine myself and can say it works great in
my experience.

Btw, there will always be a slight delay (which is hardware related)
when tuning.  However, it shouldn't be more then 1-2 seconds.  I hear
the mythtv guys are disgusted with their channel changing delays. ;)
