[mythtv-users] Smoother video playback?

I'm sure this is an oft-discussed topic, but one where the arguments
change every time there's a new driver revision.
So, at time of writing does anyone have any recommendation for which
NVidia driver version to stick with as far as XvMC is concerned?
I'm a little bugged by the smoothness of DVB MPEG-2 playback (SD) -
it's not unwatchable, but nowhere near as smooth as playback on
*coughs* MS-MCE on the same hardware - especially when the picture
pans, or there's fast movement.
I've experimented with various Modelines (and settled with
1280x720_60 from the NVidia pool), and countless combinations of
playback mode/deint settings. XvMC and BOB has thus far proved the
smoothest. CPU usage rarely
My hardware (FWIW):
Nvidia FX5200 (AGP)
Intel P4 2.8GHz (EM64T - HT)
1GB DDR400 RAM
"Nondescript" LGA775 mobo
