Default Image tearing/image artifacts during video playback

Hi all,

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10, MythTV 0.21+vdpau patches, and NVidia driver 180.29.

When I play recorded content on MythTv (or in mplayer, for that matter), I get image "tearing". My guess is that the picture isn't syncing correctly? The condition was quite severe, until it was suggested I disable compositing. I did so, and the situation improved notably, but I do still see artifacts and tearing, particularly when there's a scene with fast motion.

Anyone have any thoughts/ideas as to what can be done to prevent or minimize this problem?
