Have you tried booting the box with pci=nomsi on the kernel options line?

EDIT: from your other thread, it appears you have tried this already.

In VDPAU the video playback fails right away. If I disable VDPAU it works well, with some slight tearing. I believe I have disabled composite, but I will try and verify this again. I wonder if maybe there is permission problem with the mythtv user on my system? Is there a specific device file that VDPAU needs access to?
