Perhaps you missed this section?
"XvMC usage is controlled using the Playback
of MythTV as of version 0.21. In previous versions, you simply set
the Preferred MPEG-2 Decoder to one of the XvMC methods appropriate for your
chipset. With 0.21, this is a more flexible configuration allowing for
different decoders depending on the content. For XvMC, the Bob deinterlacer
provides the best deinterlacing but with some performance penalty. "
