I take that back. I was running a transcode process on one core  
(taking the whole core) and those were my numbers for playback. Now  
the transcode process stopped freeing up my second core and now I'm  
seeing Xorg taking between 90-98% of one core and mythfrontend taking  
60-63%. This seems especially excessive. I'm having a hard time  
upgrading with ATrpms right now but if I ever figure that out I'll  
try upgrading my nvidia driver and see if it helps.
