I can't say, other than I do not have that problem.  But, I also limit
my captures to 720p and 480i.

I would like to do 1080i, but I watch too many documentaries, and I
watch those at 1.3x timestretch.  My system can't keep up with 1080i
and timestretch using software decode.  VDPAU works perfectly ---- for
a while ---- and then I start getting minor stuttering.  So, I avoid
1080i from the HD-PVR.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
