The BIOS is on the latest level already.
I've upgraded mplayer to the latest svn and since then I have no fast 
video issue, but instead the playback hangs.
Surprisingly, using the old mplayer it behaves the same, it hangs randomly.

When it hangs (still picture and sound) the CPU hits 100%. But I can 
easily get out of that hitting Ctrl-C. Every time I do that I get this 
MPlayer interrupted by signal 2 in module: sleep_timer
Full dump of one of these hangs below.

mc=0 has no real effect on any of the issues I have.
