It's probably these are built with the latest xcode, which uses the
llvm compiler, which won't build myth in release mode, only debug. I
suspect this is the issue.
My late 2006 iMac (c2d 2 gig, ati somethingorother for the gfx) will
nolonger play 1080 HD stuff without stuttering (BBC HD and Channel 4
HD), maxing out both cores in the process, however XBMC (pointed at
the myth storage folders) plays most of the recordings just fine. (The
higher bitrate that 4HD seems to use can choke it a bit, but most are
watchable in HD.)
