Yeah, I'm on the openchrome mailing list and saw a post by "fuzz" that
stated the driver currently in svn detects the CN700 as a non "PRO"
unichrome chipset and only creates 1024x1024 xvmc surfaces which can't
support HD content.  Guess I'll just wait for a patch to be
incorporated.  Hopefully it'll be soon.
