So the profile that I select in that list is the one that it will run with ?

How do I know how many CPUs to select ?

Exactly which logs should I be watching ?

By howto, do you mean the wiki entry or is there another document I am
supposed to be looking at.

Is it necessary to install vdpau-video-freeworld ?

Would anyone care to share their xorg.conf file ?

My current symptoms are that the front end can't keep up even with a
simple avi file, ie the video runs way too slow.  Mythfrontend hangs
when I try to leave the video player.

This machine has 2GB of RAM, installed into one of the two sockets.

Any ideas ?
