[mythtv-users] XvMC, bob, OSD, and the patch

I am currently using Myth CVS from after the time this patch:


was included.  The patch theoretically displays the second field (of two interlaced fields) which was, in the past, skipped.  It has greatly smoothed the playback using XvMC with Bob...no more choppy play, and for obvious reasons.  However, this has for me introduced another problem.  The OSD now flickers madly, and it looks like the overlay is only on one of the two bob field/frames, which sort of makes sense given the patch.

My question is...is there something else I have missed that would fix this?  I assume since I have not seen other complaints that this is not a REAL bug, but some misconfiguration on my part.

BTW, I am using ivtv 0.1.10-pre2-ck113a, just in case that matters...
