sVideo Capture Glitches

So I was working on my Glitch Codec Tutorial Videos and I came across this peculiar glitch. I was sending sVideo out of my Toshiba Satellite running my moded Ubuntu into a Sony HDV capture deck. Every time I would open up a video clip the screen would glitch out for 2 to 3 frames. The glitch was in part your standard blocky capture glitch (the kind of pattern that shows up when you fast forward your camera while capturing from it), but it also had this beautifully colorful (analog?) spill. It would screw with the colors (making them extra saturated) and create these really organic-spill patterns. This is a first for me, if anyone’s got similar capture glitches please share ‘em :)
