Hi,

if you have got any (european) 720p TV channels that are choppy, this might be the reason :
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/7481#comment:4

I have problems with "EinsFestival HD" (sattelite - TechnoTrend S2-3200) and "DR HD" (cable). DR HD is only stuttering very lightly but einsFestival HD is unwatchable.

Recordings of DR HD is also not playable with Xine vdpau in beta2 (upgraded yesterday morning). Audio is stuttering - but video is slightly better.
Maybe the same fix can be used for xine ?

Can you watch those recording successfully in MythTV itself? All of the UK based HD broadcasts that we have tested or that our UK customers are recording are playing fine in MythTV at HD 1080p

All the best

I can watch those in MythTV. But they are also playing choppy. DR HD is stuttering slightly , but audio is OK and EinsFestival HD is really choppy - I assume the above fix is needed. 

I did not get to trying to play an EinsFestival HD recording with xine yet as the recording I made (called Unknown because no EPG) was not added to the Video list.
