Just for the record when I said Lots of problems:- It can be
problematic (for non experts) to setup vdr and all the relevant
plugins, gui addons etc.  I was informed on this mailing list that
other people were viewing bbc HD with no problems so I thought i had
not configured everything correctly.  And this seems to be the case,
as I indicated, once I set interlacing to bob all worked correctly.

Actually now i think about it it was i am using xineliboutput-sxfe
which i think might be different to the vdr-xine-plugin.

That is why i didnt report a bug.

Dan

because quite frankly i am not exactly sure what I am doing except
trying to watch and record tv.
