[Sorry if this is a duplicate, I've been having some email problems lately]

I've been struggling with getting video capture working reliably under
MythTV from my DCT-6200 (Comcast). The problem is that the right side
of the picture is clipped off.

I tried capturing using both MythTV and the 'test-mpeg2' command, with
identical results.

I've tried Xine and Mplayer and Mythtv for playback, and they all show
the same results.

Here's a screenshot (too big for an attachment) from Xine showing the clipping:


Does anyone with some firewire video expertise have a clue about how
to fix this?

Here's the relevant version & cmdline info:

SW 74.53-3321
MCA 0-4, 1-8192, 2-16505, 3-33457
Firmware 16.20

Linux (Ubuntu 6.10):
tad at media:~$ uname -a
Linux media 2.6.17-10-generic #2 SMP Fri Oct 13 15:34:39 UTC 2006

Capture command:
