[mythtv-users] Playback of HDTV, HDHomeRun

I have a P4 at 2.8 GHz and I've been using it just fine with a Hauppage 250
card for nearly a year.  I just purchased a flat screen TV and an HDHomerun. 
I got the HDHomerun to record a snipped of a high-def program for just 11
minutes (which was 1.26 GB !).  The playback is basically impossible; choppy
doesn't begin to describe it.  I suspect it's some sort of super high-res
MPEG2 format but I don't know how to get at info on my video files so I am
not certain.  An auto-transcode of this file brought it down to only 1.1 GB
but that didn't help the playback (unsurprisingly).  In my playback
settings, I observed that there are various filters 'n such that apply
depending on the resolution.  I did some tinkering there on the higher
resolution stuff but haven't gotten success.  Can someone advise me on
things to try and/or how to go about troubleshooting playback of HDTV?

Thanks in advance.
