Not directly related to xorg but I was able to almost eliminate the 
"NVP: prebuffering pause" errors by adjusting the Audio Sync from the 
menu. Seems that for some reason it is off by 330ms in all the channels. 
When set to +330 myth seems to stop prebuffering almost completely.

I'm now running the atrpms version 0.19-127 but this prebuffering 
problem started with version .126 when .125 was trouble free for my setup.

Frontend is a 600Mhz PIII and the signal comes from T-version DVB cards 
from an backend system (2x800 PIII) with a 100base-t connection to 
internal net. All machines are running Fedora 5 with latest updates.
