I am fairly wary of using a snapshot and I am scared to compile myth from source...
I will muddle through for a while waiting for a .21 myth or new knoppmyth. I hate PIP, but the wife says we have to have it.
You would think they would put more options in, like 2 SD side by side instead of PIP. Or 2x2 for those with four tuners???
I know XVMC cannot PIP, is there any chance of that ever getting fixed or is it a XVMC limitation? XVMC is super smooth on my box, but PIP HD + SD stutters (when it does not seg fault)
And I still have not seen anyone else with aspect ratio problems using PIP. HD+SD+widescreen display = problem?
