Actually I've managed it (hdtv) on a 900Mhz Unichrome-pro (with mplayer) 
with some horsepower to spare, and I believe he (or someone with the 
exact same problem) mentioned it on the openchrome mailing list already. 
Saying that it worked fine on xine. One of the problems at the moment 
will be the myth code attempting to allocate 16 surfaces, which it won't 
have the memory for for hdtv.
