[mythtv-users] [XShm] Framedropping in LiveTV Mode

I've got an ASUS Barebone with an Radeon X1250 onboard videocard.
XVideo is not supported by any available driver.
X11 is running fine and Xine plays Videofiles with the XShm-Driver perfectly.
The output of MythTV is running on ~15fps and less.
A look at the Console shows, that MythTV is trying XV-Output and then fall 
back to XShm.
The Playback is running 1-2 sec smooth.
I've build in an Athlon X2 4200 CPU, and i hoped that i can compensate the 
missing video-accel with CPU-power.
Any ideas to get MythTV running without framedropping with the XShm Output? 
i'm sick of using VDR.
