Re: GT430 + 260.19.21 + VDPAU = artifacts
I have this same problem with my ION board since updating my kernel and nvidia drivers.
I use vdr and the xineliboutput and streamdev streams play cleanly on my windows laptop. The host machine uses vdr-sxfe with VDPAU and the "sparkles" in dark areas are very noticeable. Only happens on SD MPEG2 channels (which I have set to temporal+spatial) and HD H264 (temporal only) appears clear. Definitely not a broadcast/tuner issue.
How do I go about screen capping VDPAU in ubuntu?
Edit: Just switched from temporal+spatial to temporal on SD MPEG2 and the problem is gone.
