Yes, exactly! :)

Ohh, bingo! Somehow I had CPU++ set in the profile. I changed that
to CPU+ and video seem to work fine now, including all previously
recorded programs!
I didn't check it with mplayer though, as I don't remember for sure
which videos weren't played back properly by mplayer... (ooops!) :)
Will check it later, as I'll be watching some movies from my archive.

Thanks a lot for your help!!!

P.S. Are there any recommendations on the Playback Profile settings
for an i915G integrated graphics with a 3-GHz Dual-Core Pentium CPU?
