I have wait and look working output solution for VDR now several years and
end result seems to be that there is no solution. Not now or in near future.

Analog FF card is history, no DVI/HDMI or HD option for that.

Reelbox eHD looked promising, but there is no real SW support for this.

VDPAU with Xine looks promising, but it is still unstable. Yep, I know that
issue is mostly on Nvidia driver side.

VDR itself is great solution for recording, but watching live tv or records
is not supported on great level.

I think that I start looking other solutions.
