Ok .... out of the blue I'm watching a xvid of My name is Earl and I notice that i am getting a wierd "Splitting" effect on the picture. I expand the vid to fill the screen anf the quality is very jerky and low. I tried to play it in other media players insteasd of WMP9, but got the same thing. Also a full screen image in powerdvd is jery and low quality too. Any hunches?
