Default Re: MythTV VDPAU tearing on Recorded and Live TV on startup of playing

I think I am getting actual tearing. Only playing back HD content on mplayer-svn w/ vdpau. The symptoms appear sometimes, and not reproducibly. They seem to be related to the particular movie, but not reproducibly, so I get tearing more frequently on some movies in some scenes, but if I go back and try to get it again I cannot reliably do so in the same scene.

My tearing appears as a horizontal line across the entire screen, about 1/4th of the way from the top. It looks like the upper portion is slightly offset from the lower one. Picture looks perfect, except it looks like it was cut horizontally 1/4th of the way down, and rejoined slightly off.

I have seen this problem on and off through many different NV and mplayer releases. Currently I am using NV version 185.18.14. I have an GeForce 8200 chipset, and I am playing on mplayer SVN 29333 with FFmpeg SVN 19012 patched to add multi-threading

Can anyone recommend something to try?
