Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

VIA Epia SP8000 & video corruption on high-res

I have a small VIA Epia 8000 where videos are corrupted on the bands when I play files which have a resolution higher than ~800 horizontal pixels.
Did anybody have such problems? It looks like that a portion on the image gets partially mirrored in an interlaced way on the sides of the video window.
I am thinking it might be that something with the mpeg2 & mpeg4 accelleration does not work. Changed kernel, upgraded X, upgraded mplayer (tried as well Xine), upgraded ffmpeg, but nothing changed. Perhaps the hardware accellerated chip was not created to handle such "high" resolutions?
Well, thanks.
