Hhm, I've no idea why this issue happens after about 10 minutes and 
vanishes when you restart VDR.

Please try to find something useful in the logs of VDR (e. g. 
/var/log/messages) and run fbxine with --verbose=2. Of cause you have to 
redirect stdout/stderr of fbxine to a file in order to get a log from 
fbxine while console is taken over by directfb.

BTW: nice to hear that xine's directfb driver works with a matrox card.
