I couldn't solve my tearing problem either until I went with mythbuntu
fresh install.  I have sync to vblank in myth settings, sync to vblit
in nvidia-settings, and use xvmc and xv-blit for my playback(it
doesn't work for me to use opengl video).  Now I have pulled the edid
out of my TV and found my 1080i modeline, but that didn't really work
so I went back to 1080p at 59.94 as opposed to 1080p at 60.  Either way, I
used to have tearing when I used Fedora 7 and SUSE 10.1, but haven't
had too may problems since I switched to mythbuntu, don't really know
why, maybe I'm just starting to get the hang of this linux thing.
