Jittery MythTV

After resurrecting my MythTV box, I finally compiled the mythfrontend on a
Debian Sarge box that is going to be my front to the mythtv server.

I have two problems though:

1) Watching live TV is jittery. Every second the image pauses for a second
   before continuing. I had MythTV running on the same machine several
   months ago and it worked fine, so I don't think it's slowness.

2) Sound is "metallic". It's pretty bad in quality.

Anyone have a clue on how to solve these? Much appreciated.
