The other posts in the thread on whirlpool say this :-
"i have a 9500gt and am using the mythtv binaries from that repository however when i select vdpau as the renderer i get image corruption in the form of multicoloured blocks."
"I too have this problem with a recently purchased Gainward GeForce 8400GS (http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=94
) using Nvidia driver 180.27 and package 0.21.0+fixes19892-openglvdpau-0ubuntu0. I get "macro blocks" watching both HD and SD material in Myth. It's the exact same result as having a bad digital signal"
so i feel i am not alone
