No XvMC here:
2006-09-30 13:09:12.910 VideoOutputXv: XvMCTex: Init failed

And I just rebuilt it with --cpu=k8 --arch=k8 --tune=k8 (no change, or if 
there is its minimal.)


Enabled xvmc - now the cpu usage is down a bit (sd stream, choppy without 
 7315 mythtv    15   0  339m 135m  29m S 83.4 13.4   0:50.90 mythfrontend

And the X usage is so low its off the map.

Grey OSD lowers the WAF but we're getting there. Now I get audio crackles on 
HD recordings though. :( To get it to play cleanly I need to go back to 
libmpeg, with the cpu-usage problems.
