The 6200 has the horsepower to do standard decode & OpenGL video out for
standard-def material.  Looks good.

I am seeing a semi-reproducible system hang (no response to keypresses
or ssh) when switching between timestretch value of 1 and 1.05 -- which
presumably is switching OpenGL deinterlace methods.  I was using Bob
(2x,HW) as primary and Onefield (HW) as fallback.
