Old versions of 0.21-fixes (and 0.21 release) had a bug where Myth would 
use the wrong video params for LiveTV (i.e. those of the dummy video 
stream) which caused issues with the deinterlacer and refresh 
detection.  What version are you running (output of mythfrontend 
--version or mythbackend --version)?
