When I attempt to play a video file using Vidix, everything is in
greyscale until I change the saturation. If I change to full screen, the
colors once again disappear. Tapping the keys works there too. It seems
that someone somewhere has forgotten to pass on the saturation setting to
the hardware. Here's the output from MPlayer, playing a MJPEG AVI file:

I have no problems with Xv, but it seems to be a tad slower than Vidix.
That extra speed is enough to make real-time software MJPEG playback
possible on my hardware.
At times, the upper/lower parts of the screen contain parts of different
frames. This leads me to belive that vsync is lacking.
