I wasn't sure wether or not encoding/decoding off the dumb cards was the
It sounds like a problem with my radeon's 9200 video support then.  

To Manu:  what are you running for video drivers?  I'm running mandrake
9.2, xfree 4.3, and ati's driver fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.1.i386.rpm.
The version of myth I'm running is mythtv-0.14.
