I wouldn't be surprised if it's the capture card, and not the tvout.
I've ruled out my tvout solution as the bandwidth-limiting factor in my setup
(using test patterns, etc), but the PVR-250 capture still isn't as crisp as the
TV by itself.
As an aside, is there any adjustment in the flicker filter stuff on
this thing? Can you disable it? I suspect you're right that the ticker issue
is from the flickerr reduction doodad.
