[mythtv-users] garbage on top few pixels of HD video

The thing that is strange to me is that it only shows up on the NBC  
shows, it doesn't show up on my HD recordings of Lost and it goes  
away when I pause the playback.
It looks to me like something in the video is getting corrupted  
somewhere, especially since if I play the video back on my mac there  
is a tiny bit of out of band info on the top but nothing like the red  
and blue stuff I see on the myth box.
