I had a similar problem a little while back: I upgraded (I think...) xineliboutput, libxine, ffmpeg and vdr on my frontend box. I _think_ I had vdr-1.7.26 on the server and 1.7.27 on the frontend. Bizarrely, I had lost all transparency on skinsoppalusikka that I usually use but did have transparency with the ST:TNG skin! I spent quite a while trying to work out why because both skins used the same alpha values for the backgrounds, etc.! A couple of weeks back, I bit the bullet and hacked about some of my plugins so that I could compile them with vdr-1.7.29, and I also upgraded ffmpeg, libxine, xineliboutput to the latest CVS, mercurial, SVN, or whatever, and transparency is back! I never did work out what caused it (I suspect different versions of "something" on the server and the front end) but updating various things to the same versions on both seemed to do the trick.
