I was going to wait to let the someone post himself, but before things 
go too deep...

Someone (sorry, can't remember who and my logs are a couple thousand 
miles away on a powered off system) was talking with Isaac on #mythtv 
channel a couple of days ago about this issue and was attempting to 
debug it.  They seemed to be leaning toward color conversion issues.  
Whoever it was seemed to be pretty motivated to fix it...
