My machine doesn't have an ssh daemon running currently, and since my
output code doesn't have keyboard support yet, I'm not quite sure.

There are no audio stuttering or video glitch problems at all - unlike
the X stuff, so I assume it's using less resources.

I will be getting an ssh daemon running tonight or tomorrow, I'll let
you know what the CPU usage, etc is then.

As far as I know, DirectFB supports hardware scaling and color space
conversion on the CLE266, even though it's not using Xv.
