[vdr] speeding up vdr+xine on an old Pentium4

You are absolutely right, the P4 has indeed 2.4GHz (and 512MB of RAM)
Which makes it the more surprising that on SD channels I am getting cpu
utilization in the region of 80% to 95%
It should be a lot less?

This is the lspci output for the graphics card:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE/PE DRAM
Controller/Host-Hub Interface (rev 01)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation
82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM
(ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)

I?ve taken an old PC (Intel graphics card on board, P4 at 553Mhz, 512Megs of

Do you mean P3 or have you mistyped the clock speed? The slowest P4 was
about 1400MHz, I thought. Surely one wouldn't be underclocked by such a
huge factor.
