Oops, I managed to send my reply to Jarod rather than to the list, 
totally by mistake.  Here it is:

Alright, so I got the 4363 modules installed.  Much better!  The 
flickering has reduced to one or two lines, something that looks far 
more closer to "normal" and might actually be adjustable with myth's 
settings.  I wonder why it did that only on the TV and not on the 
monitor output though.

Also, I'm still having the other problem, where, once I exit out of TV 
mode (or go to the program guide in TV mode) I get a really messed up 
menu screen.  The screen appears to be shifted about 20% right, so the 
left 80% of the of the output displays just fine on the right 80% of the 
screen, while the left 20% of the screen is a flickering mess composed 
of the proper left part of the output and part of the right output.

That part really has me stumped.  I'd reinstall myth if I thought it'd 
do me any good, but I see how it would.  And now that I have drivers 
that appear to work....hmm.

Still wondering if this might be it.
