Are you saying that you are using XvMC for HD playback and you have NO
issues? By no issues, I mean truly no issues: Full color OSD, no
prebuffering pauses, smooth OSD with no flickering, no stuttering at all
anytime while watching live TV or recorded TV. Many people have minor
issues but are willing to live with them.
If this is true for you, I'm sure many would appreciate you sharing your
relevant hardware (CPU, Video, etc) software versions (nvidia driver,
mythTV, kernel, etc) and xorg.conf.
