I am using a Fujitsu laptop with an Intel "Chipset 852GM/855GM".
When I try 1080i recordings I get ac3 audio, but instead of video just a blue 
screen. The following snipped is the relevant Myth output:

==============================================

Today, by mistake I start mplayer on a piece of an 1080i recording that I had 
copied a while ago to this front end. To my big surprise it played in it's 
full glory.

I thought my fe was unable to do hd, but it uses only 85% cpu and plays 
nicely. Now my appetite is whetted ;-)

Any idea why the Myth player can't handle the job, but mplayer can?

Cheers,
Remco
