I should also include that I can record and watch my recordings with no 
troubles whatsoever, and they look pristine.  this only occurs when I am 
watching live TV.

since everything else works so well, i'm inclined to think it's that I just 
have some MythTV setting set to a not-good value.  Apart from that, I'm 
thinking it could be memory, but I don't have any other problems when I'm 
NOT in MythTV.
