Thanks Steve. I'll play around with it to have another look. That said, 
  I remain of the view that the dedicated HD tuner > display in the LG 
LCD tv  is far more capable than anything I can stick in or tweak in the 
mythbox. It seems to those in our house that the picture is brighter, 
more vibrant. And there is absolutely no motion blur.  In fairness, I 
had the same criticisms when I was running WinXP MCE and Vista MC early 
this year.

That said, I look forward to seeing nvidia's Purevision for Linux when 
it arrives:


NB Hardware is AMD AM2 4800+, 2G RAM, nvidia 7300GT based.
