I was having problems with the version rolled into the latest VDPAU
patch. I'm now using mythtv-0.21-field-order.5.patch, and that is
working fine. The one that I'd expect to work best for you is
mythtv-0.21-field-order.6.patch, which is almost identical, but
applies directly to 2.1 fixes. Which one were you having trouble
