Here's my xvinfo output:

  $ xvinfo | egrep '(Adaptor|port base)'
    Adaptor #0: "NV17 Video Texture"
      port base: 355
    Adaptor #1: "NV05 Video Blitter"
      port base: 387

I tried both ports explicitly, using

  $ mplayer -vo xv:port=355 tearing.avi

for the NV17 Video Texture port and

  $ mplayer -vo xv:port=387 tearing.avi

for the NV05 Video Blitter.  Both have the same problem with
tearing artifacts.  What am I doing wrong?
