Thanks for your feedback. I'm running a Q6600, 2.4Ghz quad core, so I don't
think this is a CPU issue. My OTA recordings at 1080i are rendered fine
without using VDPAU. I believe that the problem is actually in the
recording itself, not in the playback. I transferred a small piece of the
video to a Windows laptop and played it with vlc with the same results. I
haven't played with any of the bitrates available through the v4l-ctl
utility. This may have some impact on the output. I'll try to play with
