This is also a wierd thing, some people report MPEG4 is poor, others say it
about RTjpeg...  Hmm, I guess that it's something in the particular
compression scheme that will look bad to some people, but not others.

All looks great, but this 'normal' figures (quantity) don't really matter
that much to MythTV.

Possible trouble makers:

> an ATI TV wonder PCI card
 - Driver?
> 100 Gig Hd
 - DMA ? <sigh>
> Nvidia Geforce Ti200 with TV out
 - Using nVidia drivers?

Don't think these are relevant:

> Turtle Beach Santa Cruz

btw, which version of MythTV are you running?
