I have this issue with XvMC and recent svns, but I don't have hdtv.
Sometimes an MPEG2 stream will work okay, other times it will have
intermittent crackly audio and/or hang after a few seconds of
display. With the standard decoder there is no problem. (I'm using
NVidia driver 7667 on a GeForce 4 MX).
