Umm. X on the tv-out doesn't seem to present any useful Xvideo
extension, and I was assuming that the reason for that was that it
required stuff on crtc1. Is that a false assumption? Would a g400
(instead of a 450) change this? Without the xvideo layer my p3@...
seems to not be fast enough to do anything useful under X.
Actually it occurs to me now that even if X did present a nice Xv
extension on the tv-out, would mythtv (or any other player for that
matter) have any mechanism for playing interlaced video with the correct
synchronization? (Using mplayer's dfbmga output layer I need to set
fieldparity=top and vsync=1, and I'm not sure there would be any way to
do the equivalent? It would be rather sad to have to deinterlace the
video in software only to display it on an interlaced TV!).
