I pretty much have my M10000+PVR250+Gentoo system set up now, except for the
fact that my CPU is hitting 100% when watching LiveTV, which causes
occasional freezing. I've tried adjusting all of the MythTV settings, as
well as the EDX field correction in cputest.c. I've also gone through this
I'm at the point now where I'm seriously considering attempting to go with the
VIA binary driver to see if this helps any. A few quick questions:
Does anyone know if there is a difference in the playback of live TV when
using the binary driver as opposed to Ivor's open source driver (does live TV
even use the hardware decoding of the M10000)?
Is there a procedure on the net somewhere that will help me to get the VIA
binary driver working with Gentoo 1.4 (2.4 kernel)? Is this even possible?
Could my problem have more to do with my X configuration, rather than a driver
PS. Thanks everybody for the excellent help that I received on previous
issues that I was having!
