Disabling the textured video Xv adapter (via hack to the sources) has
solved the problem of 100% CPU usage and dropped frames. I was also
seeing vertical shimmering (meaning the flipping wasn't quite right)
which has gone away when using the video overlay adapter.
The code for the MythTV Xv output and deinterlacer is at:
I did not write it so I can't give a much better description, sorry.
