I am running mythtv trunk version an try to get hdtv running smoothly.
First I have to say, that until running the trunk version (I had v0.20 fixes
before) hdtv livetv was impossible. Now it is playing, but with a
very "jittery" picture and skiped frames.
I do not know if it is a problem of my hardware configuration:
Gfx: GeForce 7300 SE with native nvidia driver
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6320 @ 1.86GHz
So I think it is not too bad. But when I run "top" while playing a livetv I
see it is displaying about 100% till 140% for mythfrontend. So I guess I
reached the limits :-(
Mythfronend is running as a normal user.
So the question is if my hardware is not powerfull enough to play hdtv, or if
I have to tweak my config.
Looking in the documentation did not show me a special configuration hint.
So maybe someone here has a similar config and can give me some advice ?
