my xine-ui is 0.99.3 as well (mdk rpm) but lirc is 0.6.6
(also mdk) . I suspect the lirc version may be the problem
but i am unsure if changing this will have any impact
to the other (working) programs?

-H is wanted because my video driver is "dxr3", a holly-
wood plus card. i don't want to see an empty video window
when playback is via dxr3 on my tv.
-I is (i think) for switching on deinterlace. but the lirc
problem also happens without -I
i also had this config working on my heavily patched
mandrake 10.0 before but the update to mdk 10.2 made
this issue pop up...
in my last config i compiled almost everything myself
(at least kernel, lirc, dxr3, xine, mplayer, myth).
and i am quite sure that i had lirc 0.7.0, but i deleted
the sources unfortunately so i am not sure :(
i think i will give it a try and update the lirc stuff
by hand and see if it behaves the same way. just wanted to
avoid it ;)
i will give feedback if this helps.
many thanks so far

kde 3.3 as it comes with mdk 10.2
i thought these focus problems are only related to
