Has anyone had any luck with Softdevice and an NVIDIA 6800Ultra?  Also I 
hear of problems with like the TI4200 etc.  My issue with my 6800 is 
through XV I get video on whatever channel I have VDR set to start with, 
but if I change channels I lose it, and only get OSD from there on.  And 
can't get it back without restarting VDR, it will start on any channel I 
set it to start with in the SETUP.CONF but once I change it is gone.  As 
where if I use DFB which is what I would rather use, I don't get video 
at all, just OSD and AUDIO on the first channel, but again if I change 
it goes away.

I am using CVS of Softdevice, DirectFB and DFB++ and have this issue.  
If anyone has any tips or tricks, they are gladly welcome!
