variant? I used that patch, and downloaded the 20091013 cvs revision.
patch went fine. cropping works! so far I have no 1080i dvb feed, I
can test camcorder which has 1080i.

so far I like vdpau a lot. For anyone interested in my xorg.conf don't hesitate.

I use laptop with 1440x900 LCD set to 50Hz, s-video also set to 50Hz
graphics card nvidia 8600M
nvidia-driver 190.36
vdr-xineliboutput-cvs-20091013 with crop patch v11
linux-2.6.30-r4 SMP

8600M goes from 169MHz on no vdpau 50'C, with progressive input and
vdpau, goes to 275MHz 59'C, and finally deinterlaced content jumps to
600MHz and 64'C
