Thanks, but I guess I will be fine with the transparency key. The screen 
output would not be so much for watching videos, but mainly for setting 
up timers and cutting recordings. For watching, the plan is to stream 
the videos to the Samsung SmartTV in the living room.

I will try to put back the dirty_lines[] optimization that I removed in 
my initial attempt (trying to make it as simple as possible). The system 
felt slow without that.

You are one of the Softdevice authors, right? Is the CVS tree at 
berlios.de still open for patches? AFAICT, recent years the mailing list 
archive are corrupted, and the latest commit was a couple of years ago.

Best regards,
