[mythtv-users] Video noise or distortion across very top edge of image

I've got the HD-PVR running on Component capture of a Motorola DCX3200
on a dedicated backend.
I've got a dedicated frontend using VDPAU and 0.22 compiled from source.
Channel 222 is CNN Headline News (love my Robin Meade). I am seeing
some sort of video noise or distortion across what seems to be the
very top pixel of my playback image. This happens in LiveTV and also
This morning I used the Shutdown-Menu on the Motorola DCX3200 to tell
the STB that my TV only handles 1080i and 720p which finally got me a
full screen image on my Samsung LCD Television. Now that Samsung is
connected to frontend using the VGA dsub. The max resolution on this
Tv is 1368x768 so I wasn't going to mess with the HDMI out on my
The motherboard is an ASUS with an onboard nVidia as follows from lspci:
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce
8300] (rev a2)
VDPAU seems to be working ok out of the box - the distro is MythBuntu 9.10.
I tried adjusting the Vertical offset in the Setup-->Playback menu. I
moved it from 0 through 10 (trying each incrementally) and I wasn't
able to notice any difference. It does seem that each time I invoke
the LiveTv mode I may get a more or less dramatic experience of this
Does anyone know what this is and how to go about resolving it?
