Thanks Tom.

I do have XvMC enabled, is that used by the GeForce4 card? I'm assuming that
I enable it in the mythtv config, checking the box for XvMC. Do I have to do
anything else? Is simply checking the config option sufficient?

Is XvMC mpeg2 decoding done on the card, or something else?

Are you using any other filters to improve quality?
