Nothing pops out, but I didn't look that closely... But I will point out that you're running a completely unsupported build there, which no MythTV dev is likely to care about fixing. For one, 0.21 is no longer the current release, and so far as I know, there are no plans to do any further work to fix any issues with it. Second, you've got the vdpau backport in the mix. If you want to have a prayer at this being fixed, you're going to have to upgrade to 0.22 anyway, so I'd upgrade and try to reproduce there. If its fixed, then party, if not, then at least you're running something MythTV devs actually care about fixing. :)
