There was a build of MythTV on ATrpms with the OpenGL sync code enabled, which 
slaughtered the cpu on my system (and others) with similar video stutter 
problems. It was replaced by a build reverting to no OpenGL sync enabled for 
the moment, so that may have been the source of your stutter as well. The new 
build generally works great for me, both on audio and video.

Not a clue what's going on here. Did you by chance upgrade ALSA packages to 
1.0.6a? There are reports that it has some bugs in it...

I don't think its related to your problem, but you're not supposed to spec 
mpg_buffers anymore.
