It is xine-lib message, for sure.
Basically, with xineliboutput it indicaters your A/V sync is out of
order... ? or you are really out of CPU power.
In normal situations Y should never see this msg (unless for "frame
sync", when switching channels etc.
when switching channels etc.
What kind of system you are using ?
Does this msg appear only when switching channels or starting replay ?
If yes, pse, post me (private mail ?) your complete logs + audio and
video config with (maybe even complete system cfg).

Typically running vdr nd vdr-sxfe iun same machine takes up to twice the
CPU load compared to separate systems.
PII 400 is just enough to decode + display mpeg2, but if Y have vdr
running in same machine you should double each one.
