Any hints? I.e. how/when should matroxfb kernel module be loaded? Now I load it in rc.modules.

Have you tried OProfile or strace -p <pid of vdr>, or attaching gdb to
the running vdr process?
Hmm, what's OProfile? I am not quite sure if I am starting matroxfb in the right place. For some reason I can not get it to load automatically with udev settings. There is a
I'm using a statically compiled matroxfb.  I've used vdr+softdevice for
almost 2 years now, and I haven't had any problems for about a year.
(I reported quite a few issues that were fixed.)
I selected vdr+softdevice with matrox because I've read so many good things about it. Like small cpu resource needs since I've got only PII 550. And one reason is also the lack of A/V sync problem. My other vdr is with FF card and I have A/V sync problems every single day at least once.
A few times during the two years, I've seen softdevice displaying fewer
than one frame per second, running at very low CPU consumption.  I
presume that there is some race condition in the thread setup.  You
might be running into a similar problem.  Post some debugging results,
and we'll see.
What should I do to get debugging info since there is nothing in the syslog. Log shows that vdr seems to have started normally and I can get a picture which ofcource is a slideshow of still pictures because of the cpu load. Normally changing to a radiostation drops cpu load to some 5% but even that dont have any effect. Only restarting vdr helps.

Can poor antenna signal cause something like this? Normally I have cable at home and I and constructing a "new" vdr to be taken to my summer home where we have aerial. At home my dvb-t signal if avfully poor.
