Odd, I didn't even get sound.
I'll have to make sure that I disabled the interlacing and stuff...
Nope, same deal.

You likely won't get any video.

XvMC: picture structure FRAME
And that's all I get. Front end just kind of hangs. I can kill X with
the shift-alt-backspace thing. Myth .18.1 from ATRPM and Nvidia driver
7676 and 8176.
While the 6200 card is faster and has the component output, the MX440
card would at least play with XvMC enabled, which I'm pretty sure will
allow HD content to play smoothly, or at the very least massivly lower
the CPU usage.
