What's the vsync to Black option? is that in the guisettings.xml file?

@everyone else

Running hardy on a 2Ghz core duo asus mini mobo with a intel 945G video chip and I'm getting some tearing at 720p. Not the end of the world, but enough to be annoying compared to when I drive my projector with my mac. So far I've turned off compiz and set part of my xorg.conf to look like this:

Section "Device"
        Identifier "Configured Video Device"
        Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
        Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
        Option "ExaNoComposite" "false"
        Option "TexturedVideo" "false"

xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.2.1-1ubuntu13
xbmc 2.1a2-hardy2
(--) PCI:*(0:2:0) Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller rev 2, Mem @ 0xdfc80000/19, 0xc0000000/28, 0xdfd80000/18, I/O @ 0xac00/3

Is there anything else that I can tweak to get about 10-20% more performance?

I can get about 1100 fps with glxgears but I have no idea how any other opengl stuff runs as I just got this box and it's going to be 100% for xbmc.

thanks for all the work on this. I can't tell you how happy I am to have xbmc on ubuntu and able to play 720p content!
