[mythtv-users] XvMC on a nVidia MX440

When I set my myth system up a couple months ago, I initially had a lot
of stuttering on video playback. I asked on the irc channel, and they
helped me trace it down to XvMC; once I disabled it, my stutters went away.
I've seen a lot of traffic in the last few days about the joys of XvMC
and been seeing loades in excess of 2.4 on my myth system, so I'm
attempting to reinvestagate using it.
I'm using an nVidia MX440 (AGP) with kernel 2.6.9 and nVidia drivers
6111. If I recall correctly, I ended up having to downgrade to nvidia
6111 due to 6629 (or whatever was the latest release) not working with
MX440s, and that forced me to kernel 2.6.9, as 6111 wouldn't compile
cleanly against newer kernels. I also seem to recall the helpful fokes
on irc letting me know that 6111 and MX440 don't play well with XvMC.
So...Is the above paragraph correct? Does anyone have any suggestions
as to how to fix this? I'm a bit hesitant to do much tinkering without
prior knowledge, as this is my production box and its getting pretty
heavy use (from family members -- I practically have to get up in the
middle of the night to get time on it).
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
Thanks again for all the wonderful work!
