Hi All,

Is there any possibility to have MythTV support VIDIX and thus the various 
back-end scalers on graphics cards? I have a matrox G550, and when I use the 
xmga-dev driver via a "-vo xmga" parameter call to mplayer, I get better than 
15% reduction in CPU use, i.e playing DVD's Video's etc. 

Unfortunatly MythTV only supports the xv driver, so I cannot use VIDIX or xmga 
when using MythTV which is the most CPU intensive task and could benifit from 
the extra 15% CPU reduction.

Any chance of adding VIDIX support as a feature request ..... pretty please ;-)
