That would be great.
I'm having a bit of conceptual difficulty with the fact that mplayer can
play a 720x480 video with not even breaking a sweat - I'll check CPU
usage later; ISTR somewhere around 20% - but Myth can't play 1366x720
video....AFAICT that should scale to around 80% CPU usage; I'm maxing
out at 98% and it's failing miserably. And I'm using Xv with mplayer
and XvMC with Myth.
I guess another test would be to play the HD recordings via mplayer and
see what happens. That's a thought.
I also came up with another nvida option that looks promising; the
|Option "FlatPanelProperties" "string" - I'll try turning off dithering
and scale at the TV; we'll see what happens.
