I've got a similar setup, with a Sempron 3000 and FX5200. I haven't 
managed to get Xvmc working since the mythtv-vid merge, although I don't 
need it [no HD] so I've not been too bothered.

Two thoughts spring to mind - one is whether you're still using Xvmc at 
HD resolution given the playback profiles, you can check in the frontend 
log - possibly better with -v playback. Also, are you actually using the 
opengl renderer, from mythtv-vid - that stresses my Sempron quite hard 
although it's fine for SD playback. I don't find the Sempron 3000 at 
1.6ghz much of a massive upgrade from the PIII 800 it replaced - 
especially before I fixed the DSDT in the bios so it would actually run 
at 1.6ghz! :-)
