Setting up a new system, with vdr-1.7.5, xine-vdpau r260 and vdr-xine plugin using a FusionHDTV7 dual express. Video card is
en8400gs silent.

First, when I have an HD stream ether live or recorded it get high frame droping:

video_out: throwing away image with pts 24715684 because it's too old (diff : 3402).
video_out: throwing away image with pts 24727696 because it's too old (diff : 4065).
video_out: throwing away image with pts 24736705 because it's too old (diff : 3566).
video_out: throwing away image with pts 24748717 because it's too old (diff : 4229).

If I turn off deinterlacing the drops stop but the picture is then distorted around moving/changing objects. vdpau does seem to be
active and cpu usage is low.

I also saw a problem with it start loosing signal and then vdr would lock up. I found the card was getting hot. I put a small fan in
the case above the card.

Another problem I'm seeing is, using the atscepg plugin when I try to scan for channels, it finds none even though I can tune all of
the ones I know about. i did use vdr-1.7.2-atsc-0.0.3.diff
