Yes, if the extra CPU load by mplayer is not even noticeable when playing back VDR recordings, and it is not prone to any type or desync, then I vote we all try to figure out what mplayer is doing and repeat it. Whats a few extra CPU
cycles if it becomes much much more stable in the end.

The reason i mentioned the dvbplayer.c thread, is that this problem was mitigated by using different code to feed the softdevice mpeg2 decoder; using softplay to playback recordings provided dropout free playback. I'm not sure if softplay works with FF cards, but you might get the source at softdevice.berlios.de to give it a try.
