I am using an i3 530 with a Biostar TH55B as my master backend and an
ocassionally used frontend.

When I first installed I was on an early kernel version 2.6.32 with an alpha
Ubuntu 10.04.  This version did not work for video playback.  I would get
constant lockups just loading into X.

Since then Ubuntu has backported some significant changes from 2.6.33 into
the release 10.04 kernel labelled 2.6.32-15 or so.  Once I updated to this
version I was able to playback HD and SD mpeg2 (recorded from a pvr250 and
hdhomerun) with no issues and minimal CPU usage.  I am also able to playback
h.264 encoded files that are less than HD resolution with no issues.  I have
not tested other types of files.

This is all using the HDMI output to my TV.  I have not been able to get
HDMI audio to work and I've had trouble determining if it because the
chipset is unsupported or if I am just doing something wrong.
