I wasn't talking about "fingering", which is *very* noticeable in all
codecs.  I'm talking about a ghosted image on the display from frame to

Today I'll be checking out a third-party VGA->TV scan converter (the ADS
Elite XGA model) to see how that pans out.  It could be a side-effect of my
crappy tvout on my Asus V7100 Pro.  Also, I am suspecting the 60hz refresh
vs. 29.97 possibility.  The VGA->TV converter I'm speaking of apparently
takes up to 100hz in the input signal, so I'm hoping to see some improvement

I'll update on this further.

Try enabling deinterlacing.
