[mythtv-users] Strange Audio/Video problem

I have a machine running a backend/frontend on version 0.20-139.fc5.at.
I have an nVidia 5200 for TVOut. Sometime yesterday my recordings AND
videos started playing fast, almost sounding like the Chipmunks, but not
quite as bad, and the video playing choppy, possibly a little fast like
the audio.

This is my main frontend. The same videos and recordings play fine on my
other two frontends. I thought maybe one of my kids got a hold of the
remote and somehow accidentally set something, but that does not appear
to be the case. I've gone through the menu while watching a show and the
setup menus and everything appears normal. 

If I run the frontend from a terminal window I get this when I play a
recording. I don't know that it looks any different than normal.

Anyone have any clue what the problem could be?
