[mythtv-users] Compile vs yum

Hey guys,

Running a mythfrontend .20 installed from Yum on an Asus K8N4-E with built
in nVidia 6150 video and XVMC with a 64bit Sempron 3400+.  It's got 64bit
FC5 on it.

Most everything runs good.  However, on 1080i broadcasts, like football,
large screen movements are jumpy.  It's watchable, but annoying.  I've
tried every possible combination of driver changes and myth config changes
to no avail.  Also, every now and then, XvMC will bail out, and CPU gets
eaten by X, so I have to save position and restart the show.

Is there any piece of the puzzle that I can manually compile to suit my
system better?  libXvMC? MythTV? Lame?  All of the above?  Any other
suggestions are appreciated as well.

The only oddity in my log file is this, which I've gotten before on other
cards as well (5200fx):
