[mythtv-users] Slow Performance

I also have problems with CPU load in the areas you mentioned.  I'm running
Myth on a 1600x1200 X display; XP 2000, 64meg GeForce3 Ultra DDR (pre-Ti).

I can't run MPEG4 at anything approaching a reasonable quality level, but
RTjpeg at 720x480 is perfectly fine for recording and playing.  From your
testing, it sounds like I would be fine if I dropped the resolution and

FWIW, if this turns out to be partially the fault of the most recent nVidia
drivers, version 1.0.3123 is still available from Gentoo...

Thanks for the legwork,
