I was not implicitely referring to the streaming as such, but the graphical stuff when playing e.g. a shoutcast stream (not clear in my first message). The mythstream interface displays some sort of realtime volume meters as the music is being played. Check the xorg CPU load when you watch e.g. liveTV, do the same when you use mythstream to play shoutcast stream. You will see what I mean. Again, when CPU load is not a concern, then it's great.

MythStream uses MPlayer to play back stream (audio and/or video 
streams).  So, if you get "acceleration" in MPlayer, you /can/ get it in 
MythStream (properly configured).

It works great for me with Xv and all (not that I've used it for much 
more than Shuttle Launches, so I know when to step outside my back door 
to watch it go up)...
