I have not tried this code for TV out, only for RGB output. If you take
a look at the code you'll see what I added is really very little, and
any bugs are (unfortunately) likely to be in the driver.
All I can suggest is to debug the same way I've worked on this, which is
to dump a bunch of timings to a file and analyze how (un)even the frame
cadence is, how close it is to the proper framerate, and where the
delays seem to be coming from. I need to do some more of this myself
(HDTV playback is still not silky smooth) so if I come up with something
suitable for public consumption maybe I'll send in a patch.

I would say that, in an ideal world, this is correct. Are you going to
see occasional combing if Myth's video sync skips a beat? Probably.
