[vdr] Strange delay in recordings with vdr-xine

I have the same problem with xineliboutput (xvdr:tcp://).
I don't remember when it all started but I don't think is related to xine.
This is just a guess, but it may be related to the problem with recordings.
When xine...... plugins worked OK I could record up to 5 channels in the
same time.
Now I can olny record 2 and the OSD has long delays after I start them (this
is without using xineliboutput, only local display from FF card)
