ATI Video Blurring on Media Center

I upgraded the drivers for my ATI/AMD Radeon in the Media Centre after 1 year of old version-ness, and suddenly video smearing and odd fleshtones are back for standard def TV.

(Why oh why oh why won’t ATI just leave my video (and historically, HDMI overscan/underscan) settings alone!?)

The usual TRDenoise and DXVA_thingy hacks didn’t seem to improve it this time, though.

Anyone got a newer set of tweaks that doesn’t make TV look like it’s being viewed through a soft-focus vaselined lens?

Or is it possible to configure good-looking video through the UI now?

I think what I want is simply a faithful rendition of what’s in the transport stream, but I’ll accept *better* image quality, sure!
