    You'll have to turn off the 'magic': the code that rescrambles the
frames into a better looking screen.  Personally, I wish it just had a
"raw" mode, instead of all the interlace, de-interlace, and generally
munging with the display.  That was ONE thing xawtv did very well.  :>

    But I love the program; it's very well done, lotsa features...try
out that "XDS" thing, if you haven't already.  Wish I could just have it
leave that on...
