To be fair to my comment above, I've had audio sync problems with live TV on 
all versions above vdr-xine-0.8.0 which is why I've never been able to run a 
newer version in production.  I've had several posts on this and tried 
everything anyone has suggested - but after an hour or my wife banging on 
about the poor quality, always downgrade back to VDR-1.6.0 and 

So I don't think my problems are related to VDPAU or VDR-1.7.x.
