I'm using it and it works great. :-)

I flipped down to ALSA 1.0.5a, rebuilt Myth against it, and all my 720p 
problems were gone. I get excellent quality playback of both 720p and 
1080i content now, all using Xv.

Jarod *was* running with mucho trouble, (which I was actually able to 
duplicate on a system almost identical to Doug's), but I managed to get 
both my P4 and Athlon playing back everything just fine.

That, and even fewer folks actually have pcHDTV cards to go with HDTV 

So did you rebuild Myth against the down-graded ALSA libs? I'm not 
certain it made a difference here or not, but I made sure to do so on 
both systems that had problems and now don't. Enabling extra audio 
buffering was the other key for me.
