You were getting that back on 7174?.  I just tried out a Leadtek Winfast 
A6200 THD (nice card, fanless, with component video out).  I have only 
tried the 7667 driver so far, but when I try to play something (mplayer 
or myth) with the resolution set to 1080i X goes to near 100% CPU usage 
and I can't use the keyboard.  I found that if I change to 480p output 
everything works fine.  I can play DVDs or AVIs with mplayer with X 
going to 100% usage.  I was planning on trying other driver revs to see 
if I could get it to work.  Maybe someday...
