What about disabling OpenGL sync (in frontend settings under Playback on
the page "General playback"):
Enable OpenGL vertical sync for timing
If it is supported by your hardware/drivers, MythTV will use OpenGL
vertical syncing for video timing, reducing frame jitter.
If using SVN head, you'll also have to make sure you use the QT painter
(in frontend settings under Appearance):
This selects what Myth uses to draw. If you have decent hardware,
select OpenGL. Changing this requires a restart.
