Regrettably 5200 is necessarily old now....

No one knows it all, in the end you have sort out the thruth. I can quote examples where I've got it wrong in the lists and someone
has rescued the truth. Thats the nature of, indeed the magic of the list.

There are plenty of recent posts (< 12 months about current vdpau PCI cards)

What it is is relatively more important than its age.

Maybe the problem lies in the hardware or the discs and not the distros then? I am really surprised you cannot get mythbuntu to run
at all from the disk. If not, I'd diagnose that first. If you know the disc is good (by running it up on any machine) and it still
don't run, then I'd probably be swapping hardware. A different old graphics card. Different DVD. etc.
Tell us what you do get, with what gear at what point?
