This was using XAWTV

If you don't care about pausing live TV, and are not likely to be watching 
when a recording happens, you can do 400x400 OK, so long as MP3 
compression is not on.. and deinterlacing off also helps.. Also, I use 
rtjpeg.. mpeg4 seems to be more CPU intensive..

That's on my P2-333..

On my AMD Athlon 1.2, I use 400 x 400 with mpeg4 and no mpeg encoding..

No non-standard optimization.. Just playing with settings

hope it helps : )
