A suggestion:  Write your arte-HD streams to disk, instead of
trying to decode them real-time.

If for some reason your CPU isn't quite fast enough, you can
later decode the arte-HD streams and see if the artifacts you
are observing are still present.

If there's some encoder parameter being used by arte-HD that is
not yet properly supported, then later you should be able to
decode that stream flawlessly (this is the case for me with ITV-HD
recorded before mplayer could properly de-interlace it).

Alternatively, I noticed myself that the occasional recordings I
made for the first couple days of the recent IFA EinsFestival 
showcase showed problems in `mplayer', while those recordings
made later were as flawless as those made half a year ago, so I
do not rule out tweaking of the encoders used...
