 Possibly your configuration??  I'm (still) running the PVR-350's TV-Out
in Myth 0.20, and I'm seeing:

 Cpu(s): 0.3% us, 0.7% sy, 0.0% ni, 99.0% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si

 ...and, it seems to stay that way, whether or not MythFrontend is
running, and whether or not I'm playing a previous recording...
