I have noticed that some channels are black as well, but only if I use VLC as
the client.  If I use VLC as only the server (connected to streamdev) and then
use mplayer as the client, it seems to work with all the channels.

Streamdev (0.3.3-pre3-geni) --> VLC from CVS (server) --> Mplayer from CVS (client)

I am using vdr-1.3.27 with current cvs drivers and 2.6.13-rc5 kernel.


This version of streamdev above with the following patch:

Note: some of the new asm code in mplayer and vlc compile differently depending
on what version of gcc you are using.  Currently I am building everything with
gcc-3.4 (gcc-3.3 and gcc-4.0 not recommended).
