XBMCBuntu issue with Radeon HD
Hello all,

I hope i am in the right section and apologize if this is not the case.

I am having a small mediacenter computer based on the Asrock 939A785GMH equipped with 2GB of RAM, Athlon 64 3200 and the onboard Radeon 4200 chipset. I am using XBMCBuntu Live 11.1 installed on the machine since a couple of months now and everything worked fine until i had couple of videos HD giving a lot of artifacts instead 99% of the other doesn't. I tested the same machine with Windows 7 and XBMC for Windows still in 11.1, i do not have that issue at all. When i press "o" key to get information about the decoder, i do not see anything special about dropping frames or whatever. The decoder used is exactly the same then the one for the 99% other movies i watched without any problem so i don't know exactly where to start ? Another strange issue is that if i update the catalyst driver to the latest release or any other than the 11.11 pre-installed with the OS, i am getting a slow videoplayback and many frames dropped by the system. I also have another mediacenter computer based on a shuttle Pentium4 3.0Ghz with 2GB of RAM and a Radeon HD 3650 512Mb of RAM which also playback slowly the videos but even with the 11.11 version of the Catalyst installed with XBMCBuntu. I didn't check on that one with Windows 7 however. As i am newbie with XBMC, i ask your help to know where to look before doing anything stupid.
thanks in advance.
