Are you able to use "jitter reduction" and "deinterlace" options on
the frontend?

Which sound driver are you using?

I have the same board EPIA M-9000 and I am seeing video stutter badly
when there is alot of motoin.

I am using the default vidoe settings.  I looked at the mysql tables
brielfy and haven't identified the fields that need changing.
