Where can I get info about savage linux support? Just got my new
notebook with Savage MX 8MB AGP card and would like to now if there's
xvideo support for it (now theres a xvideo driver for savage 4, but
dunno if it's compatible with savage mx or same driver).

Well guess if quality look like DVD it's been grabbed from digital tv
as mpeg2 (can be done ie. with older german setopbox dbox + scsi
controller) and then compressed to divx (there are many ways to
improve quality of divx, it's the question of proper
resolution/bitate, used codec fast/low or both... maybe check
doom9.net for info on that).
