Are you using an ATI card by chance? It seems there are some scaling  
bugs with the radon driver that cause the problem you describe with  
the pink stripe when viewing 720p/1080i content. I've run into the  
same problem on my video card using some HDTV test clips (mpeg2).

No clue yet on how to fix it through. For me, chances are, I'll just  
try my luck with a nvidia adapter and binary-driver-hell.
