Thanks for your feedback.  I'm running a Q6600, 2.4Ghz quad core, so I don't
think this is a CPU issue.  My OTA recordings at 1080i are rendered fine
without using VDPAU.  I believe that the problem is actually in the
recording itself, not in the playback.  I transferred a small piece of the
video to a Windows laptop and played it with vlc with the same results.  I
haven't played with any of the bitrates available through the v4l-ctl
utility.  This may have some impact on the output.  I'll try to play with
this later.
