Hah, I had almost forgotten about that issue...I don't know if it's the
same issue as Nick is seeing, but it's for sure the same issue I had just
over a year ago:

I reinstalled my frontend OS multiple times with no luck. Whenever I
changed the frontend name (to get a clean set of settings), it was only a
matter of time before the issue reappeared. One time it lasted a couple of
days, but the next time it only lasted 5 minutes. In the end, before giving
up and purchasing some new non-VDPAU capable hardware, I bruteforced all of
the VDPAU video playback settings. I came to exactly the same conclusion as
you; remove the vdpaucolorspace filter setting and the problem goes away
_permanently_. I never managed to figure out if it was a bug in the NVIDIA
drivers, the VDPAU library or in MythTV.

Best regards
