Good to hear... I used to have a similar problem with 1080 content on my
XPress 200M-based laptop (though mine was only with the closed-source
driver...the open-source stuff has almost always worked better for me).
I know from reading several forums that /many/ users who have upgraded
to ver. 6.8.0 of the ATI X server have seen problems disappear; this
release really seemed to be a big hit. I read the dri and mesa
developers' MLs regularly and I feel it's safe to say they are more than
valuable to this community with all their hard work! </rave>
