Bad luck? Obsolete xine libraries? I'm running three vdr-sxfe clients at 
home with nice 50 Hz progressive 720p/1080p output to DVI with close to 
perfect vertical blanking sync (or in other words the horizontal text 
scrolls are smooth and sharp). I didn't get that working with on-board 
AMD780G graphics in my newest PC but a cheapo Nvidia card fixed that. 
Now I'm looking forward to eventually switch to VDPAU.
