I've just upgraded to 2.6.18, ivtv 0.10.0 and myth 0.20 and got
something similar - with the PVR350 accelerated output option enabled in
the frontend, I get audio but no video. With it disabled, I get audio,
letterboxed video and lots of artifacts with the OSD/playback jitters
whenever the machine isn't completely idle (not entirely surprisingly).

Having looked around the various mailing lists I can't find any other
reference to this behaviour.
