I had the exact same problem last week. The v4l2 driver resetted the
card from 720x576 to 640x576, while it used to work OK until at least
april this year. It seems it tries to impose an NTSC horizontal
resolution even for PAL content. I think it is libavcodec at fault, as I
don't remember having recompiled the kernel or bttv inbetween.
PS: I did not try grabbing with Ffmpeg or MEncoder since then.
