[mythtv-users] Noticeable pixelation during playback since moving to 0.22?

Hi all,

I upgraded to 0.22 over the weekend and watching some old recordings, I've noticed there's a definite pixelation going on, as though the video has been upscaled and the original was a much lower resolution (say 640x480?)

Even the HD recordings have a noticeable pixelation.

So, just wondering if there was some kind of setting that I missed somewhere? I'm fairly sure I've checked everything pretty closely, but nothing is jumping out at me.

The kit I'm running on:
frontend: Mac Mini 2.0GHz running Snow Leopard w/ 4Gb RAM + David Snider's build for OSX 0-22-fixes-20091107_Rev.22764 (thanks David!!)
backend: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz, 2Gb RAM
tuners: 2 x HDHomeRun (Australian edition)

I had no issues with 0.21 at all and watching the feed directly from the HDHomeRuns (with VLC) shows a nice clean feed.

Any help/advice anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated!
