I but in the geforce card becuase mt other card didnt have the required 
acceleration. The documentation on the mythtv website went into detail about 
this as a possible cause for prebuffer pause.

I didnt see it as a softwre problem as everything was prebuilt. I just had 
faith that the software worked. I assumed that the computer I built out of 
junk was just too slow (a dual p2,450).

Using a pixelview bt878 rip-off aka "bravo", 640 x 480 @ 25fps.

wow, not sure whether this e-mail is flame-bait or what.  the question
i have for you is why you would try to fix what you perceive to be a
software problem with hardware.  you also left a few crucial details
out of you e-mail, mainly what capture card are you using, what
resolution are you capturing at and what bit rate.

personally, i have a combined frontend backend with a few pvr-250's in
it that is a measley Athlon 800 with a tnt2 ultra for the vid card and
it happily decodes mpeg2.

not sure why you "* bought and installed a geforce card
* got xwindows working with nvidia
* upgraded machine to a P3-1Ghz. (not a celeron!)" needed to do all that.

anyway, hope that is of some assistance though i'm sure plenty of
people are staying away from this thread just because of the title ;).
