Oh yes I was on to that in a flash.
Things are much improved but still not good enough for my 'production' setup.
You can select VDPAU rendering and temporal/spatial de-interlace for h264 video
(SD and HD) giving fluid 50Hz frame rate. But when you then watch some mpeg2
content it falls back to software rendering and the standard 25Hz de-interlace.
Have posted a question on the XBMC forum whether it is possible to select VDPAU
(and hence VDPAU de-interlace) for both h264 and mpeg2 decoders. The XBMC forum
is incredibly busy so I am sceptical I will get a response.
My setup with XBMC is now:
XBMC svn checkout
VDR 1.7.11 (unpatched!)
cvs streamdev with all patches applied from
