I'm not sure if it was the right thing to do, but I just created a blank
OSD theme with only a mostly blank osd.conf file. Now I can watch HDTV
with no stutters or sound problems. Processer usage drops from 95-100%
down to below 50% on average. I'm amazed that XvMC would drop the usage
by so much. It makes me wonder if I could get away with using my Athlon
1400+ for a HDTV frontend instead.
One other question I have, could an AMD K6-2 550MHz run a HD myth
backend? I already have this system always up running a Samba/ftp
server and would rather not have to leave my HTPC on full time to record
