Re: MythTV VDPAU tearing on Recorded and Live TV on startup of playing
Do you see the same problem if you bring up the OSD? If so, you're seeing the same thing I was when I was using my 8200IGP to play h264 1080i video. After the OSD went away it took a second or two to "clear up." If I played 1080i MPEG2 video there was no corruption. I think the issue may be that the 8200IGP just doesn't have quite the horsepower to handle both h264 decoding and the OSD.
In my case, upgrading to a 9500GT fanless solved the problem completely.
