For reference, here's the conversation in #xine on freenode:
<xxtjaxx> Hi i am using xine as my favourite backend for phonon and its
quite good. But recently on the debian (squeeze/sid) package
things such as changing the hue or saturation are not working can
this be something that happens when you have special build
<_ds_> xxtjaxx, see what xvinfo reports.
<xxtjaxx> _ds_: I havent had a dive at such things before would you be so
kind and tell me what I should actually look for?
<_ds_> See what XV_* controls are reported for the first adaptor listed.

<xxtjaxx> I do not actually know what it is but: http://pastebin.ca/1734099
<_ds_> There you go: no XV_HUE, no XV_SATURATION…
<_ds_> What hw, which driver?
<_ds_> (hmm, actually, looks like there are two Xv adaptors there)
<xxtjaxx> Its a nv card
<xxtjaxx> _ds_: is this something to change at build time?
<xxtjaxx> so it is a hw issue not xine?
<_ds_> Hardware or the X driver for it.
<xxtjaxx> thanks for the help!
<_ds_> You can use the eq2 video post-processing plugin, though.
<_ds_> (That does it all in software.)
<xxtjaxx> And that I can do how?
<_ds_> Wherever the post-plugin chains are configured.
<_ds_> (Don't ask me; I don't use phonon.)
<xxtjaxx> I dont do anything special with it myself (just using it) but
* xxtjaxx has quit (Remote closed the connection
