The 0.20 final seems to be working very well for me.  I haven't used
it a lot yet, but thus far it's been stable and performance is
improved over previous versions.

I noticed two minor issues, can anyone else confirm them on their Mac?

1) When I turn off the vector acceleration option, I no longer get a
crash.  I now get a distorted picture, where the colors are primarily
purple and green, and the distorted image is tiled on the screen
several times.

2) AC3 to SPDIF passthrough results in messed up sound.   After
glancing through the code, I don't think SPDIF passthrough is in the
Mac mythtv code.  Has anyone else tried AC3 audio?
