I noticed the probelm started showing up on my system somewhere around 
kernel 2.6.18/2.6.19 and I had assumed that it was related to the ivtv 
driver.  Gentoo released another update not too long ago and things seemed 
to improve somewhat.  I seem to notice the problem gets worse whenever the 
show will do some kind of overlay (like a bar with someone's name), 
cartoons, or some kind of score board (the cash/trip total screen on Ice 
Road Truckers)....

I saw someone mention ping times between the frontend/backend.  Don't 
think this is my issue since it shows up even in recorded TV.
