I'm now on b449f5e.  I wondered if I had appropriate driver-extras
installed, and looked at


I had the cuda-libs package, and have now added vdpauinfo, 
libva-vdpau-driver and libva-utils as suggested in the VDPAU/VAAPI 
section.  On frontend startup NVDEC is available and VAAPI is recognised 
as using a VDPAU backend and ignored.  NVDEC codecs are MPEG1,2,4, VC-1 
and H.264
The OSD always says it's using ffmpeg and no deint.
