Please don't top post or use HTML mark up in your posts to this mailing list.

As for your troubles, have you tried bypassing mythtv and recording
straight from the /dev/video0 device?  The command would be like:

cat /dev/video0 > ~/Desktop/test.mpg
wait 30 seconds and press <ctrl><c> to end recording

That should put a file on your desktop.  Do the test on both of your
installs to see if there is a difference.
