Thank you for your help and I'm sorry that it has taken me almost a
month to look at this.

I couldn't find any differences in register settings.

I was getting exactly the output explained in the message that you
linked to.  Setting step_size and max_drift to 0 makes the glitches a
lot shorter.  I also tried playing with the min_delay_ms, and got the
best results by setting this as high as 4000ms.

With these three changes, the TV output is then as good as with the
connexant based card.  Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
