Default Same lines bug with me


I just want to confirm that I get the same bug. Playing any video (especially DVDs) There are interleaved black lines when in fullscreen mode. It just looks blurry. Here is my setup:

nvidia drivers 1.0.4363
linux 2.4.20
nvidia GeForce ti4600
ViewSonic VX900 LCD Monitor

snippet from XF86Config:
Section "Device"
Identifier "nVidia GeForce4 ti4600"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAgp" "2"
Option "NoLogo" "Yes"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

Someone mentioned that running another movie first in fullscreen and then running the movie I want to play will work. That does seem to work around the bug. Also the bug seems to only materialize when I use the xv driver. For example, in mplayer if I use -vo sdl or -vo x11, there are no interleaved black lines in fullscreen.

However, I am using the newest nvidia drivers and the bug is still there. So hopefully nVidia can take a look and fix it.
