I know it's bad form, but just to follow up on this, I did eventually
work out that vino-server (the remote desktop stuff) was eating all my
processor time (and that was why the recording stopped working).

Still not fixed the TV out, but will tackle that some other day (and
will also have a play with openSuse whilst I'm at it).
