[mythtv-users] Epia, MythTV, and a pile of confusion

So this xvMC stuff all confuses me.  I looked into the
tv tuner stuff and found how to get the remote working
the way I want so that won't be a problem.  What is
the xvMC stuff exactly?  Does Myth use this
automatically?  I saw something about it regarding
xine.  Do I have to use xine or will mplayer still use
this stuff?

To clear things up, correct me if I am wrong, the
Unichrome drivers are open source video drivers that
already contain all the 3d stuff to make gl work
smooth.  This xvMC stuff refers to the mpeg decoding
portion of the mobo.  Thats all i got so far.  Is
there anything special about the Unichrome drivers?
Thanks again
