I am running the latest openchrome experimental drivers.  In Xorg.0.log, I 

[XvMC] Registering viaXvMC
[XvMC] Initialized XvMC extension

So, everything looks ok there.  In the frontend, I chose Deinterlace - Bob2x 
and viaXVMC for the decoder.  When I watch TV, I get the following error:

VideoOutputXV: XvMCTex: Init failed
VideoOutputXV: XVideo Adapter Name: 'XV_SWOV'

and my video is horribly choppy.
