The massive jerkiness in my live TV *seems* to have gone away (XP2100+
system). It appears that installing the Gatos ati.2 and drm-kernel stuff
for my Radeon 7000 AGP (non-AiW) fixed the problem. Maybe this is just a
coincidence... My box still runs at about 90% CPU for live, but it
doesn't always pause like before.
