Yes, this was over 2 years ago though.  Myth performed about 20% faster
back then.  HD takes almost nothing to record (about 7% CPU for 4 HD
streams, including software raid 0).  Playback would put the CPU near
100% if I had de-interlacing going on a 1080i stream.  Myth's playback
has received lots of good code to make video more smooth, handle
seeking, time stretching and other features.  This did have the result
of needing more horsepower to watch the same video clip.  Mplayer and
MythTV had the near CPU usage to view a stream -- You can easily see
this is no longer true.
