[mythtv-users] Slow PVR-350 decoding in MythTV

I have finally managed to get TV-out working on my PVR-350.

Well - almost... 

The thing is, that the command below plays smooth and beautiful on the 

dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video16 bs=64k

And if I record an mpg file and plays it in the same way everything is 
fine and smooth.

But! When I enter the MythTV frontend to play back the file (or the 
live stream) it gets really choppy. It's skipping every second frame or 

I noticed, that there are no difference weather or not I tell MythTV to 
use the decoder!

Any suggestions?
