        It looks like XV support is poor on nVidia's newer chips:


If that thread is accurate, I think it means newer 6800 and all 6600
and 6200 cards.  Does anyone know any different?

        I guess I didn't pay attention to the reports of people on
this list having problems with these cards.  I got a 6600 card and
playing a 720p video at 720 or 1080 resolution just maxes out an
Athlon64 3500 with the X server using more than 60% of the CPU.  There
are also no XV controls for brightness, saturation, etc.
