I would prefer a ffmpeg (mplayer) based interface and dump xine because xine/vdpau combo doesn't properly handle problems with the atsc stream. The way I understand it according to rnissl in #xine, when there is any corruption to the stream, vdpau changes the image size, rounding the number or something. When that comes back to xine, xine crashes and I end up with a black screen with the command prompt in the upper left and the "X" mouse pointer in the middle and vdr still chugging away in the back ground. I have to restart vdr/xine/xorg to get it back up. He gave me a patch in irc channel 3 months ago which reduce the problem but didn't remove it. A couple weeks ago I updated and found the patch was still not in. Hopping a better fix had been put in, I used it stock and now have to restart several times a week, sometimes a day. Signal is strong, but the local broadcasters are morons and even with a strong signal and steady picture it will just crash because of some very minor blip in the stream. I also see the picture and audio go to a freeze frame studder. but that is fixable by simply switch channels. I have turned it on and found a green screen with no audio. This also corrects with a channel change.

Xine also has too much extra junk and its related dependencies which are not needed.

xine-lib-1.2-vdpau is just a link to xine-lib-1.2. Use ether one and you
get the same. You want:

hg clone http://hg.debian.org/hg/xine-lib/xine-lib-1.2

and if you are using vdr-xine plugin:

hg clone http://hg.debian.org/hg/xine-lib/xine-ui/

I prefer to use the vdr-sxfe frontend. I presume it does work with
xinelib 1.2 because it's present in yavdr, but it's a pity it's bundled
with the VDR plugin, from the point of view of building just the
frontend because I've already got the VDR plugin catered for.
