Hi Andy,

Thanks for the info.   I might consider moving to a card with some more 
grunt! :)

I'd be interested to know what you use for the following settings (the 
number of combinations to try makes it hard to know what combination is

    * Rendering method for OSD
    * vsync options in "nvidia-settings"
    * OpenGL vsync setting mythtv
