It just occurred to me what you are saying. mplayer is an external
program tht mythtv calls and is independent to whether mythv has vdpau
support or not. so as long as i have an mplayer that supports vdpau
(which version would that be?), i should set the vdpau option for
mplayer as long as i am running an nvidia driver that suports it?

If so, what are the typical mplayer options that should boost 720p/1080p
