First, thanks to all who made the 0.22 release possible.

I am running Mythbuntu 7.10 with a standard definition TV and am
looking to upgrade to Mythtv 0.22 for a new HDTV.

*** My existing setup; ***

ASUS M2NPV-VM AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    North Bridge      NVIDIA GeForce 6150
    PCI Express x16      1
AMD Athlon 64 LE-1600 2.2GHz Socket AM2 45W Single-Core Processor
Model ADH1600DHBOX
SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model DRW-2014L1T
A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Antec NSK2480 microATX Desktop Case 380 Watt

Silicon Dust HDHomeRun - Broadcaster / TV tuner
Hauppauge Low Profile TV Tuner Card WINTV-PVR 150MCE-LP PCI Interface

*** Planned upgrades for HDTV ***

MSI N220GT-MD1G GeForce GT 220 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16
    Interface      PCI Express 2.0 x16

Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EADS 1.5TB SATA 3.0Gb

-- Software --
MythBuntu 9.10    http://www.mythbuntu.org/
JYA's repo VDPAU     http://www.avenard.org/media/Home.html

The GT220 seems to be the minimum for Advanced 2x de-interlacing with
VDPAU.  It appears that the GT220 cards do not support sound over
HDMI.  This doesn't bother me too much because I'll likely just be
running sound through the TV speakers and can continue to use an
analog connection.

Any suggested improvements or gotchas?
