Comment(by rhp):

 Replying to [comment:3 danielk]:
 > This is a driver problem, the driver needs to stop handing out surfaces
 when it runs low on memory.

 As you can read in my previous comment, the fact that the driver is
 reporting that it cannot allocate surfaces anymore is just a warning.
 In fact: it is actually mythtv that keeps allocating surfaces until it
 can't (which is the real cause of this warning).

 Nevertheless: even with an updated version which allocates only 14
 surfaces (and thus avoiding said warning) the CPU usage is still way to

 Could we please start focussing on the actual problem now?
