I've upgraded my hardware. Now bktr(4) does not work perfectly
as it always did. I've tried two applications xawtv and fxtv.
Both show exactly the same reaction.
The picture in overlay mode is being drawn, but most of the
time only every second scanline. Sometimes the scanlines
in between can be drawn and half of the picture stays on
the screen for a few seconds making it impossible to enjoy
TV. When I keep the window small or pick 320x240 the picture
looks quite acceptable.
Are there any problems with VIA chipsets? I've tried
"options BKTR_SIS_VIA_MODE" but it didn't help.
My kernel settings for bktr(4) are now:

The bug was reported in kern/56245 for 5.1 and it still persists.
Is there a bugfix available? What else can I try?
