[vdr] xine: very high CPU load

Hi. I'm using VDR 1.3.37 with vdr-1.3.31-dvbplayer5.patch,
vdr-1.3.37-sc.diff, vdr-1.3.34-ffdecsa-0.1.2.diff, vdr-femon 0.9.5,
vdr-sc 0.5.3, vdr-xine 0.7.6, and xine-lib, xine-ui, both latest CVS
snapshots with patches from vdr-xine 0.7.6. My DVB-S card is SkyStar

Although I have Athlon XP 2000+ with 512 MB RAM and GF3 Ti200, xine
eats about 70-80, and even sometimes 90% of my CPU while displaying
VDR's screen. I have followed tips from the xine FAQ but nothing
changed. When I'm playing movies from my harddrive everything is ok. I
have even tried launching the X server (X.org 7.0RC4) without window
manager, still no efect. Can you help me, please?

Or maybe there is a way to use mplayer instead of xine?

Thanks in advance.
