 Is this the head branch (trunk)?  I'm not sure but its possible
the pvr-testing2 branch is more popular,


because it adds pvr (live tv, dvb...) support so you can use xbmc
with e.g. mythtv(?) or vdr (actually I was looking forward to test
it with my preliminary vdr ports,


because for example xbmc is supposed to be faster at switching
channels - only to discover you ported the `wrong' branch. :)

 Anyway, I use RV730 PRO [Radeon HD 4650] graphics on a PhenomII
box here and got playback working (including 1080i dvb-s2 h264
recordings from vdr), but first I had to disable tvout in xorg.conf
(Option "ATOMTvOut") because with it xbmc kept turning off my lcd
even after I told it to keep it on, and I found no option to ignore
tvout or select the lcd as main display.

 Thanx, :)
