I have tried turning off deinterlacing and there is no noticeable 
difference in CPU utilization.  It still stutters.

I believe some other channels I get are 720p as well.  (CBC Canada, 
CityTV and CTV - Toronto stations).  But I could be wrong - it there a 
way to determine what the stream is in MythTV or from a command prompt?

When I playback 720p content recorded from ABC and Fox on MythTV it does 
not stutter at all.  (I do not transcode my recordings... I only run add 
detection.)  Just live TV viewing is causing xorg to spike in utilization.

Thanks for the suggestion.
