hi,

since I updated from vdr-1.7.11, there is some change in the way H.264
is treated:

With 1.7.11 + xine with vdpau support, I can watch H.264 "HDTV" shows
without problems.  Occasionally, there is a small glitch.

But with 1.7.14 + the same version of xine, H.264 (both SDTV and HDTV)
fail.  Syslog reports:

The picture has big distortions, and typically xine hangs at some point.

With traditional Mpeg-streams, there is no problem watching with 1.7.14.
