Default Mythtv flickers with weird patterns.

This is related to my previous unanswered post: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=121038

I have installed 177.83 and I am still experiencing a problem with mythtv playing content. This problem did not exist before 173.14.12.

When mythtv plays, it shows random patterns on screen on top of the video. Here are some screen shots:

This patterns flicker very fast and give me a headace. This patterns only occur when I am running compiz. With out it, the video runs fine. Also if I bring the screenlets to the front and the screen becomes dim, the patterns go away.

I am running:
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 8800 GTS 512 (rev a2)

This problem is also existent in the beta drivers 180.08

If someone else is able to run mythtv without flickering with the same setup, please let me know.
