Funny thing going on with black strips in MythTV
« on: February 09, 2010, 02:31:40 pm »
Sorry for the very vauge-sounding subject, but that was the best I could do.

The problem is that whenever I browse channels, or change the volume, or anything really, an imprint of the orbiter is left behind on the black strips at the top and bottom of the screen. Has anybody else seen this happening?

No biggie; I just wondered if this was a known problem.

Cheers,
Matt.

I have seen this at the top and bottom of my screen, only on a few pixels top and bottom, and usually it's the screensaver showing through.  I havn't been using myth lately so I couldn't say if it's happening there for me or not right now...  The mythtv window is being layered on top of the lmce windows, which is how lmce deals with visibility of it's various components.

You might try adjusing the video overscan settings in mythtv to compensate...  don't remember how specifically, somewhere in the setup section of the frontend.

I used to have to adjust the video overscan when I was running mythtv frontends on xboxes around my house.  I don't believe this adversely affect lmce in any way.

I've just upgraded my TV to a 42" LCD, and I'm not seeing this problem any more...... will post back if I see it again.
