Hmm, actually yes, both my other systems are AMD, where as the system 
I'm having trouble with is Intel. If a fix is already in the works then 
I may just wait until Axel gets the next set of rpms out. I knew the 
risk of running SVN when I upgraded to it, but decided it was worth it 
so that my firewire STB would work reliably.

The kicker is that my backend is in the bedroom, my frontend is on the 
nice big LCD HDTV. So I'm having to watch the HD stuff on my crappy 
CRT.  :-( 

Thanks for the replies.
