I've finally been able to compile xine-lib 1.1.12 - it took a while 
before I even knew I HAD to use the 1.1.11 patch on this 1.1.12 version. 
(and some patches couldn't find some files immediately, so I had to 
manually look for them, but it worked)

Anyway, the video is mostly good. Stunning actually.

For some reason, though, I can't watch sports. Not that I ever would, 
but on BBC HD there are regular previews & sport previews, and the sport 
previews are ALWAYS jittery and choppy.

You could say that there's a lot of action in football, but that's not 
it. In the tennis bits they were sometimes barely moving and the screen 
still jumped, while in the torchwood preview there were lots of flashing 
screens, big camera pans, lots of running, ... which worked perfectly.

Are they sending out sport streams in some other way?

Oh, I also could not run xine with these settings:
xine -V xvideo --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio --post upmix_mono 

I had to remove *-V xvideo --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio --post 
upmix_mono *or I would not have any sound. (Well, sound would play for a 
nanosecond and then drop out.)

So my command is

xine "vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes"
