You know, this may have nothing at all to do with your problem but if
you are really using xvmc with your setup I would use standard
(ffmpeg) or libmpeg2 instead.  You don't have any HD sources and an
XP2600 is way more than fast enough to play back SD recordings (like
those from DVD's, PVR cards, etc.)  XvMC still has some drawbacks and
if you don't have to deal with it, I wouldn't.
