I'm sure this has been remarked on before (like here
but I haven't yet been able to find an answer...
Basically, everything I do in Myth uses almost no CPU (typically 1-2% load
when watching/playing back TV) except for the visualisations in MythMusic.
Top reports X and Mythfrontend using about 45% CPU when the viz are in
"tiny" mode, and completely thrash the system when I pop them up to
fullscreen. This is on a Athlon 2400 displaying at 1280 by 1024.
I'm using a boring GeForceFX MX 4something-or-other, and have tried
compiling myth with and without support for the nvidia overlay stuff, which
doesn't seem to make a blind bit of difference CPU-wise (and of course
losing my colours in the OSD). I'm using the latest stable version of the
gentoo nvidia ebuild, namely 1.0.4496-r3. I switch to the xfree GLX to
compile myth, and then back to nvidia GLX once it's done, as per ebuild
Anyone have any ideas how I can get the GFX card to help with the viz?
Much obliged for any input, even if it's an RTFM or STFW ;^)
