I built my M10000 system about 3 months ago on Fedora FC6.

I compiled the 'fixes' version from SVN and installed the openchrome
video driver (although I  don't think that was necessary because I
think the unichrome hardware is already supported in FC6)

I'm get less than 20% CPU load when playing back standard definition
DVB-T captures using mythtv with xvmc. (about 10% playing the same
file using xine).  70% is the figure I get without xvmc.

I did have some trouble getting mythtv to work properly with xvmc.
Although xvmc was apparently configured right (good messages in the
frontend log and Black&White OSD) it wasn't giving any reduction in
CPU usage.  I discovered that running the frontend as root fixed this
and then, while working to enable "real time priority threads" it
started working correctly with non-root users.

Now it runs sweetly, and I don't have any freezes.



I'm running a compiled 'fixes' version on Fedora FC6.
