I noticed the probelm started showing up on my system somewhere around
kernel 2.6.18/2.6.19 and I had assumed that it was related to the ivtv
driver. Gentoo released another update not too long ago and things seemed
to improve somewhat. I seem to notice the problem gets worse whenever the
show will do some kind of overlay (like a bar with someone's name),
cartoons, or some kind of score board (the cash/trip total screen on Ice
I saw someone mention ping times between the frontend/backend. Don't
think this is my issue since it shows up even in recorded TV.
