I just installed the OEM kernel (5.10.0-1023-oem) and tested VAAPI 
Normal profile. Still crashed. I switched back to OpenGL High Quality.  
The only real issue is that on high action, about 10% down from the top 
there is some tearing. Not sure if this is Wayland, X11, or mythtv. But 
it could just be early in the Xe GFX support.
