I have an nVidia 256MB 8400GS and haven't seen anything like this. I  
bumped up my HD-PVR to the highest quality setting and it all looks  
good aside from some sync line near the top of the screen. I think my  
display is set to 60hz but Ubuntu will only let me set it to 61 for  
some reason. OTA HD looks blocky, h264 content looks beautiful. OSD is  
all white and unusable. I'd say it's a pretty excellent start!
