I was having the same problem with my pvr-150 and an old GeForce 2.  I 
think my problem was casued by the ivtv drivers though as I don't have 
that problem now with newer drivers.  You may want to try updating your 
drivers or you could cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test.mpg and then see if 
that test capture has the blue line.  If it does, its the ivtv drivers, 
otherwise it could be something with the xv colorkey.
