Yesterday after upgrading to .20 I noticed high loads on my 800 MHz
Athlon frontend until I turned off "Deinterlace playback". I already
had nvidia's proprietary drivers working. Now the CPU usage is down to
roughly 70-80% while watching recordings or LiveTV. Unfortunately I am
not sure if that's the level it was at before the upgrade. It's a slow
machine though, and it is working.
