Useable for mythtv yet?
Is the open source driver for e.g. the 780G useable for mythtv yet - at a minimum will drive XV without tearing?
I'm presuming a VDPAU alternative is still several months off (at least).
Yes, r6xx/r7xx (including the rs780) support Xv just fine, including anti-tearing support.

I used to compile drm from agd5f, but now I just use the 2.6.30 kernel drm. I'll patiently await 3D support and test it on my other system (with an HD 2600 Pro) before I apply any major changes to my Myth system.
Yes, I have exactly that setup and it works perfectly!
