It's a great board, too bad it isn't available here in Australia. I
had to buy mine off ebay

Use Temporal 2X for HD content, the 9400 IGP isn't fast enough for
Advanced 2X unfortunately.

Seems that the minimum for those is a 9500GT or 8600GT

If you use my "testing" repository, you'll get access to the 185.xx
drivers as well as mythtv and mplayer using those drivers.

Note that with my ubuntu packages, in mythvideo, if you press Info (I)
and select Play with default player, you can directly play a video
with mplayer.

Make sure you create in the home directory of the user running
mythfrontend a mplayer configuration so it uses VDPAU:

# Write your default config options here!
# Default to digital sound, passthrough DTS and AC3

# Default to VDPAU output and codecs
--- CUT above.
