Heh! I'm still trying to get on top of what exactly Xv and XvMC does (the doco 
in the share/docs area in XFree86 is a little sparse, and googling seems to 
just turn up a bunch of people chattering about MythTV - go figure. Do you 
know of any online references that explain it all with examples?


PS Are ou the DTK who has those HDTV recording patches I'm currently running?
