Ok, just checked the cpu usage on my other machine (Athlon64 3200+ 64bit 
kernel, different software versions for things though) and its getting 
~40-50% cpu use playing HDTV. I should be getting my new system drive today, 
so I'm going to see if setting up the system fresh and try and match with my 
other machine

I think you and I may have a very similar issue, but since your processor is 
just |---| that much slower than mine your hickuping. I can't see how your 
video card will make a difference unless the drivers require that much more 
CPU time?

Scott A.:
Out of curiosity, are you running a 32 or 64bit kernel? You've got a 5200 
which is what I have, AGP only iirc, what AGP mode is your nvidia driver 
running in? What driver version? what Xorg versions? Compiled with gcc-3.3 or 
gcc-4.0? thanks,
