First off if you are using KDE or Gnome, then try killing xdm, etc.  Create
the .twmrc from the contrib folder as shown and startx up with fwmrc.  This
for me gives about 10-15% more resources to use with mythtv.

For example on my dual 933Mhz machine, video skips at 576x576 under kde, but
appears to be almost skip free under fwmrc.
