Not a typo, it's a 1GHz Pentium-M w/ Nvidia 7300. A 1GHz Pentium-M is 
faster than you would first believe but the Nvidia is what makes 
1080i HD content possible.

And yes, this is recent trunk with myth-vid merges. I'm doing 
xvmc-blit with one field deinterlace.

There was no improvement that I see, I was able to do this before the 
myth-vid merge and also before all the ffmpeg sync problems a few 
months ago. It's only been recent that the ffmpeg sync problems have 
settled down where I'm back to running smooth again. My only issue is 
the random freeze.
