Or as a MythTV backend.

Dedicated backends don't need to be fast.  Only people who feel they 
need faster-than-real-time commercial detection or transcoding need fast 
backend systems (and, in truth, even they don't--they only need fast 
mythjobqueue systems, and can easily disable jobs on their slow backends).

My backend system can't even decode the video it records in real 
time--let alone play it back using Xv or OpenGL or VDPAU.

You only need frontends that have 21st-century video output.
