I had the same kind of issues you describe (bad frame rate, high cpu load, tearing, picture freezing for a long while etc) and only fix I found was to disable the composite extension in Xorg. You can do it simply by adding Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection to xorg.conf. This will make it impossible to use the hud osd so expect some hideous scaling artifacts, but the cpu load stays well under 10% on a Sempron LE-1250 clocked at 1.8GHz and frame rates are smooth with no tearing. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
