My xvinfo shows the nv17 video texture and nv05 video blitter and
xvideo seems to be working.   The use of  "useevents" seems to have
fixed the stutter and tearing issues for now, at least on mpeg2

Feisty is in general a good distribution.  And if you consider it
took me weeks to get Myth working for HDTV the first time on FC3
and a day (with some list help) to make it work on Feisty, that's
a pretty good sign.
