I have to admit, it was not easy to setup 5500 with Ubuntu Gutsy on an AMD 64 bit dual processor with 3 G of ram; however, it is setup. One thing is that I couldn't get anything to work with the 64bit version of gutsy; so, I reverted back to the x86 version.

I have both digital and analog signals. It's nice to be able to watch HDTV on my 1080i HDMI capable Acer LCD; however, things are a bit slow. I'd like to know if there's anyting I can do to accelerate the video playback a bit more. My graphics setup is awesome with onboard Radeon X1200 Series. It has 512 M of Ram allocated to it. When I was setting up the machine, I removed the fglrx module from the kernel (2.6.22) and used the AMD/ATI's proprietary drivers instead. I am thinking that the setup is quicker than having a kernel module loaded.

If anyone out there has a suggestion for me, I'd be glad to listen to and see if Myth will show any improvements. Thanks much.

I found out that if I reduce my resolution I get better, much better picture. Myth is quicker to draw its menus and the HDTV is not as jittery and much better and faster as well.

But I am still wondering if anybody out there has figured out a way to get a good performance out of their video card/tuner on a 1920X1200 resolution LCD.
