I've been doing some more testing and I found this:
Running mythfrontend on the PC monitor will playback a DVD (via the DVD module
using Xine) with my CPU sitting around 50 to 60% idle. This is great. I
have smooth good looking video and good sound.
However. When I run mythfrontend on the PVR-350 TV out playing back a DVD
causes X to peg the CPU to 100% and cause jerky video and jittery sound.
What's the cause of this and is this a configuration issue I can fix?
