In case anyone else runs into a similar issue, the problem was eventually
solved by adjusting my v4l brightness and contrast settings.  The confusion
about comparative output quality seems to have arisen from the fact that TVs
seem to be much brighter overall, so the poor quality of the recording was
masked by the relatively dark computer CRT.
