Yup, me too.  I have a button setup on my remote to kill vdr-sxfe and
start xbmc-pvr, or vice versa.  That way I don't need to get out of my

I also find on h264 streams, audio goes out of sync easily with
vdpau/xine. Doesn't happen with either mplayer or xbmc.  I have a
Hauppauge PVR-HD which streams hd content from my cable box..
