It doesn't even play SD right though and I would think it would have 
enough bandwidth for that?
So the bandwith limit could be causing the high xorg cpu%?

Does anyone know the best way to get VDPAU up and running on a gentoo box?
I used the berkano overlay to get the new nvidia-drivers, but wasn't 
sure about ffmpeg and mythtv.
