Is this video stuttering with smooth audio?  I often get that when
resuming from pause, but skipping backwards usually fixes it.  HD
recordings are much worse.  With HD, I work around the problem by
setting the bookmark, exiting, and restarting playback.

It shouldn't be CPU issue--even with HD, it's hardly stressing it,
thanks to XVMC.

I have an XP 2500+ with an nVidia 5200 card with XVMC enabled, a
PVR-250, and an HD-2000.

I expect we have some bad combination of settings, or everyone would
have been complaining about this for months.  I haven't gotten around to
playing with different settings.
