[mythtv-users] Can't play recordings made pre- PVR-350 TV out

Over the weekend, I finally gave up trying to get the lousy
proprietary ATI fglrx driver working with my on-board ATI 9100 IGP
chipset TV-out. Their driver apparently doesn't support DRM or GLX
video sync timing, leaving me with only RTC, which skips every few
Anyway, I'm now using TV-out on my PVR-250, which works pretty well.
The problem I have is that some (but not all) of the programs I
recorded previously now won't play correctly. They display about
every-other frame, very jerkily, and there is no audio.
I'm using the same resolution as before, 720 x 480, but the videos
that won't play give me a whole slew of errors having to do with the
framerate being incorrect, and no XvM available (*is* there such a
thing as XvM for ivtv-fbdev?) Oddly, I looked in the files' headers
with a hex editor, and they do seem to be at the correct resolution
BTW, I'm using Myth 0.16, downloaded from CVS on Friday.
Are there utilities I can use to display the headers of both working
and non-working files, to more easily compare them?
Is there some way I can, perhaps, transcode these videos so that they
will work with the new TV-out?
