Yeah I saw this every now and then.  Since I was always sitting down
to watch something when it happened, I never remembered to report it
here by the time I was finished watching.  :-)

I do use multi-app.

Are you running XDirectFB on the 2nd head or are you running XDirectFB
on head 1 and TV-Out (i.e. MPlayer) on the 2nd head.  If I get a G400
for the bedroom computer, this is what I want to do.

Well, here's hoping then.  :-)

I know.  Do you never see this problem?  Am I the only one?  How many
people are really trying to do what I am anyway?  Hopefully more will
be, as I have stirred up things over on the freevo list and have
gotten a few of the G400 users there interested in this work you have

I did get one person reporting "flickering" which I have asked him to
clarify and I suggested -vsync.... just checked the freevo list.
-vsync fixed it for him.  I am going to ask him to look closely at an
MPEG 2 and see if he sees old frames re-appearing.
