codecs mixup
« on: March 23, 2008, 12:04:29 am »

I clearly screwed up my installation, by installing the DVDCSS and/or W32Codecs.
Everything was working fine, except playback of encypted DVDs and playback of WMV files.
That's why I installed both modules using the linuxmce additional software option.

Once I did this (succesfully) I got into trouble with MythTV, as it now shows a scrambled screen (audio is OK)

Anybody any idea where I can control the behaviour of these new modules ?

I think this is a coincidence - both extra packages are not related to the MythTV at all (unless MythTV is evolved since the last time I saw it :). You can try to remove the DVDCSS and W32Codecs from the Add Software menu and see if it resolved your issue. But I doubt it is related.
