mythtv doesn't work anymore in 0.35
« on: January 12, 2006, 06:21:52 pm »
Hi,

my mythtv setup seems to quit working after upgrade to 0.35...

Also there is strange behaviour when navigating it with keyboard (Onscreen remote control pops up on each key press).

I tried to run mythbackend manually and it seems that backend is working, but frontend just says - couldn't initialize video device...

Any similar experience ? Any solution ?

I'm aware of Pluto efforts for integration of mythtv - what I would suggest (if I may) that mythtv backend, offline PVR service is first enabled (so we can schedule recordings over mythweb and see it over Xine device), and then GUI gradually added...


Regards,

Rob.

Hi,

I can confirm this behaviour (keyboard events trigger the menu which partly hides mythtv). Haven't found a solution.

Regards,
Michel.

Fix the unable to Initialize Video Problem

The problem is that MythTV is trying to use XvMC but it is getting an error, to fix the problem you have to turn off useXvMC function.  I do this by using phpmyadmin and accessing mythconverg:settings it is on the second page and change the 1 to 0.  

killall mythfrontend

and restart mythfrontend

The main problem according to the logs is that Mythtv needs to be built against the current libXvMCNVIDIA version, and according to everything that I have read it should then work.
