I forgot to mention that XvMC doesn't work for some reason with HD
material. It works fine with SD ( not that I need it). A bit of history,
we went on vacation, and when we came back my main frontend wouldn't
boot, so I rebuilt it with the latest KnoppMyth, re-installed everything
and got it back to where it was before, except that XvMC doesn't work.
The picture is like it's zoomed, it seems that the frames are all
overlapped, and there are all kinds of prebuffer and frame rate errors.
My next test is to upgrade to latest SVN with the mythtv-vid merges,
since my last update was just before the merge.
