Unhappy Integrated Geforce 8200: X CPU hog on video playback, slow 2d w/ 177.80

Hey, all --

I'm wondering if I'm the only one having this problem. I have a brand new Gigabyte GA-M78SM-S2H, which has the shiny new Geforce 8200 chipset and GPU.

I'm running Mythbuntu 8.04.1 on it, since it's a MythTV box. I had to grab the newer envy drivers (173.14.12) just to get the thing working at all, but that was easy.

My biggest problem is that when I play back video with Myth, and "Sync to vblank" turned on in the Nvidia control panel, the X server's CPU usage shoots up to 70-90%, which is not good. I've solved similar problems before by adding Option "UseEvents" "True" to my xorg.conf, but that doesn't seem to be helping me with this new chipset.

Am I alone?
