[mythtv] MythTV - DRI required?

I had assumed that GATOS was only for All-In-Wonder cards. Is that not
correct? I have a Radeon 8500 128 for my video card, and a seperate ATI
TV Wonder card.

Here are some links to get you started with GATOS:

    GATOS home page: http://gatos.sourceforge.net/
ATI cards and GATOS: http://www.reades.com/radeon.html
 ...and my PVR page: http://www.obscure.com/pvr/

I have had mixed success with a Radeon 8500DV and GATOS: DRM is active
but the performance from glxgears is about the same as no DRM and the TV
tuner only gets one channel.  Check out the last link for the whole
lurid story and updates as I get things working.
