New discoveries

I made two new discoveries this morning. The first is that my MythTV system's auxiliary components - ffmpeg, transcode, mplayer et. al. - work better if all sourced from the same repository. I finally settled on FreshRPMs, but AFAICS there's no real reason to choose one or the other.

Second is that, with ADSL2+, I can run mplayer remotely and get ~1FPS on the local display. Of course, that's a tiny window and there's a whole bunch of latencies in the chain. But the fact that it ran at all surprised me.
