[mythtv-users] missing lower half of video

I'm having the exact same problem, but with a Radeon 9700 Pro. I have
installed mythtv on Ubuntu 6.10, and am using the fglrx driver with
direct rendering.

When Mythtv shows a video using Mplayer fullscreen, or live TV, or a
recorded show, it only shows the upper half of the video, stretching
it to full screen size. The lower half gets cut off. Before I
reinstalled the system it used to work, with about the same
configuration, and the exact same hardware.

The odd thing is, mplayer works perfectly when executed in Ubuntu with
the same parameters. But as soon as mythtv is started something goes
wrong, and it shows video with double vertical size.
