You might want to try the vdr-xine (or xine) plugin or use xine for
playback instead of vdr-sxfe. In my case, the vdr-sxfe application is
rather unstable, has more problems with HDTV streams and it crashes
frequently. Xine however, is very stable.

In my case, I use the vdr-xine plugin and start Xine the following way:

/usr/bin/xine -V xv -f -D --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio --post
upmix_mono --post vdr --verbose=2  vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes

Make sure you edit $HOME/.xine/config and edit the following items:


The thread_count should be the number of CPU's you have (in my case it's
four). With the above startup line and the settings in the config file,
I'm able to watch 1080i HDTV streams with any problems on a Intel(R)
Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz with a Geforce 7160 IGP (using the
180.22 nvidia drivers).
