I had no choppy a/v issues with 0.16, except at the very start of
playback in mythtv or xine. At the start of playback there is usually
some paging activity which explains the choppiness. This persists for
no more than a couple seconds. With 0.17, I occasionally get a slight
video stutter during normal playback. It could be I broke something
though during the upgrade.
Basically I think an xbox makes a great SD only playback machine. You
want HD playback from an xbox under linux/mythtv? IMHO, highly
unlikely to ever happen and certainly isn't possible now.
