I have set vdpaubuffersize to various values from 2-50 with no apparent
change.  I also enabled vdpauskipchroma and disabled deinterlacing.  The
TripleBuffer option is set to true in xorg.conf (and of course I have
compositing disabled).  Nothing seems to change the issue.

This is a little frustrating because this machine worked fine under 0.23.
Were there major VDPAU changes for 0.24?  I am using the same Nvidia drivers
and the same kernel as previously, the only thing that has changed is my
MythTV version and its dependencies.  I would have just stayed at 0.23 but
the backend would deadlock fairly frequently (changeset 26827).  Are there
any other options I can try to address this issue?  This does not seem to be
too widespread, I have only seen one other post to the list that seems to be
the same issue.  What are the chances of this issue being addressed?  Is
this a regression in 0.24 or was I just getting lucky that it worked
before?  This machine is not powerful enough to decode h264 in software - is
this likely to be another example of hardware that is no longer supported by
