[vdr] vdr htpc + xine = dropped frames warning

I am running a htpc with vdr 1.7.11 + xine

I was using oxine where there is no problem with warnings but unfortunately it does not support vdpau and doesn't seem to be regularly maintained.

I have disabled dropped frames warning in xine but somehow I still get from time to time a window telling me that xine is dropping some frames.
Since the HTPC is not connected to a mouse the only work around is to press the power button on the remote (which is mapped to a script that kills xine and returns to the main menu)

I would appreciate if somebody could point me to a sure way to get rid of all warnings in xine, in fact I do not want xine to display anything other than the vdr osd and the ts stream.
Is easy to patch the xine source code to act more suitably to an htpc?
