What about HD recordings?

Dear ATI: your linux support sucks. With AMD buying you, many of us really had 
hoped it would improve, but alas...

Haven't tried the latest ATI driver, but the prior one worked okay on my 
wife's iMac. Well, at least for HDTV, dunno if I tried SDTV... But I'd 
certainly point the finger at fglrx doing something dumb, as usual, since the 
recordings are fine on other systems. I'd check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for 
anything that looks out of whack, and try 'mythfrontend -v playback' from a 
console (possibly redirecting output to a log file) to see if anything 
interesting there too.

Dunno about the rest of your issues, and I gotta run out the door...
