I have just recently noticed this. I am running an AMD64 3200+ system
(HDTV), with XvMC working. When there is no OSD, the CPU usage is ~30%.
When the OSD is displayed, it climbs to essentially 100%. All CPU is
being taken up by the mythfrontend process. Also, presumably becuase of
the high load on the system, I noticed that the sound gets crackly for
me, though the video doesn't stop (it does stutter a bit, though). I am
going to run further tests tonight, and will post if I discover anything.
