I have Fedora Core 12 and seeing the mythfrontend started idle 7% usage.
16963 steve 20 0 379m 83m 3896 S 7.3 9.6 62:25.79 mythfrontend
model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 4300 @ 1.80GHz
stepping : 2
cpu MHz : 1203.000
Running the latest update from atrpms as of today. I think it is a bit silly
that CPU is used on a screen that doesn't move.
