I've attached the log.  It's pretty long (nearly a thousand lines).
I've annotated it slightly to indicate roughly where I started watching
different shows.  I first watch a recorded 1080i program, then a
recorded 720p program, then live TV, changing channels from 720p to
1080i to 480i shows.  I verified from the command line that xrandr
reports the video mode is 1280x720 for all playback except the 1080i
show (which is 1920x1080), which is as expected.  The recorded shows are
all scaled to 1920x1080, while live TV is scaled to the current video

Oh, and I think that I don't have vdpau working correctly yet, but I'm
not concerned about that now.  (In theory, it should be doing it for
720p only.)
