I don't know what should have changed in vdr-xine that it works now. 
Maybe it's a matter of ongoing xine-lib development.

Well, this is hardly possible. VDR stops the transfer thread, calls 
cDevice::Clear() and starts a new transfer thread. So there will always 
be a loss of buffers and therefore an interruption of video/audio.

I own a GeForce 6600-GT, use nVidias driver 1.0-9631 and do not see a 
blue screen without OSD. Can you tell me your settings to reproduce this
