I reverted to older version of vdr-xineliboutput (20091013) where the
channel becomes garbage (green blocks) after a while when cropping is
enabled. I also see these green blocks when changing a channel. With
vdpau, when using streamdev-client with a bad wifi connection, vdpau
does not seem to get to correct it self gracefully like xxmc/xvmc+vlc
video output driver of xineliboutput. It becomes so bad that I have to
restart vdr-sxfe. vdpau doesn't seem to be production ready yet,
because I had it run for 18 hours and... well not in my opinion, I
will be reverting back to xxmc for now. This was all tested on SD
