Which is exactly what will happen when changing the playback profile 
group to Slim.

IMHO, Slim should be the default playback profile group because CPU++ 
only works on some systems and requires more (non-Myth/system) 
configuration to work properly.  And, since Slim is basically the exact 
same thing as the 0.20.x and below non-XvMC/non-PVR-350 video playback, 
it's probably what most people were using, anyway...
