Thanks Paul, when I make some time I'll check out that route.

I'm not seeing that anyone as a solution for the tearing. It *seems* like
people have had some success under OpenGL. A bit out of my depth here. Is
OpenGL/Xv an either-or thing with Myth? Can Myth even use OpenGL?

For anyone reading this thread in the future, good place to start with the
fglrx driver as far as Myth goes:


Although it looks like the page needs updating. The proprietary driver  is
version 8.6 in the 9.4 Catalyst package release.
