"mplayer -demuxer lavf -lavdopts fast:threads=4 -nocorrect-pts ..." 
gives steady but slow motion (roughly 50% speed) video. It is weird that 
the load on CPU1 and CPU2 is less than 40% during playback according to 
gnome system monitor. Somehow mplayer is not able to max both CPUs close 
to 100%.

With mplayer I noticed that the video is 1080i -- it is silly to 
broadcast interlaced crap. That probably explains why vdr xinelibout 
choked due to greedy de-interlacer that is pretty power consuming for 
1080i. Other channels such as Arte HD (arte 
work OK.
