Sorry should have mentioned this.  I do run it through the vcr as the tv 
is over 25 years old and doesn't have composite/s-video (were they even 
thought of back then).  My configuration is mythtv to vcr using 
composite.  Shaw cable into vcr on coax.  VCR to tv using coax as this 
is the only method.  I noticed post by Nick about using xvidtune.  I'll 
have to give that a try tonight when I get home.

Thanks for all the tips.
