That seems to solve a lot of problems.

Not a little bit of tearing, but whole missing frames.

Hmm. I get bad tearin with my ATI hardware, it looks like it's in sync, as
the tearing is always at the same place, but it's not in sync at the top of
the frame. Grrr.

That's a known bug, not sure if it's in Myth or the ATI drivers though.

Oh, is that with the radionHD drivers? Interesting.

Using fglrx is ok here with the textured video option enabled. Unusable
without. (2600 XT)

Given the rain a boat seems like a good choice.
