be the new hotness and a great way to go: nice graphics for HD playback,
low power usage, good cpu speed!

jumping around with Debian 7.4, and backports, and the drm/nouveau drivers,
and AMD Catalyst drivers, getting playback without issues does not seem to
be in my immediate future. In some cases, I can't even enter the Settings
menu in mythfrontend (it hangs), let alone playback hw-accelerated video.
not sure what that's about

really need is Mesa version 10 (Debian Wheezy has version 8) (?). Or I
could just pop the old Nvidia card on the new mobo for a year or so until
AMD compatibility continues to grow.

I have a4-4000 apu a55m asrock motherboard and mythtv frontend on
ubuntu12.04 is running flawlessly for more than 2 years now including
vaapi. All i needed to do is install the open source radeon driver that
comes with the repo. _______________________________________________
