I think I've just sussed out what's happening. My TV can handle
both video and PC levels (and YUV of course). I had it set to
autodetect, and something has changed in this minimyth version,
that is making my TV recognise
video levels as PC levels. If I explicitly set it to video levels,
I'm back to the great picture I'd had on 0.23.1.

Putting my TV on auto and removing the vdpaustudio filter is
actually very close too, contrary to my statements before, but
it isn't quite as good.

This is still a bit of a pain, but not so much so that I need
downgrade, which is great. It's a bit of a pain, because having
my TV hardwired to RGB 16-235, means I'll need to set my bluray
player in RGB mode too, but I can't really say I've noticed
any difference between RGB and YUV when I've tried that before.
