I haven't tested these specific releases, but my Mythbuntu-based HTPC has been running using the xorg-edgers PPA for several months now. My fiance' and I watch live TV (over-the-air HD, displayed on a 720p display) on it all the time, and playback is smooth. When 10.04 gets released, I'll probably remove the PPA from my sources.list and stick with the stable version (assuming 6.13.0 gets pulled into lucid).
I used to use fglrx on it, and almost always had tearing/flickering issues (unless I made the right burnt offerings beforehand). Keep in mind that I haven't used fglrx in probably 6 months, so I can't really speak to the current state of the binary driver.
You know, speaking as someone whom is frequently labelled an asshole, pandering to someone that abusive is just silly. You're putting a ton of work into software he gets for free and was never promised nor guaranteed when he bought the hardware; nobody owes him a damn thing. I wouldn't expect you to help me after I called you incompetent, and I don't see why you'd help him, either. All you're doing it telling him and everyone else that the way to get what they want is to insult and demean you guys.
Yes insulting. Yes demaining. And those idiot scum fully deserve it. A ton of work my arse. I've said it before and I'll say it again :
The radeon open-source project is a pathetic mess, run by idiots, with a supporting cast of morons who can't stand any criticism whatsoever.
If you guys want to avoid criticism then get some damn releases out instead of whining. And do me a favour, stop with the excuses, lies and misrepresentations.
