I bought a new Asus A7n266-VM motherboard (Nforce) and Athlon XP1700 for
Myth. I'm also using a Hauppague 401 card. I did a fresh install of
Mandrake 9.0, Nvidia Unified Drivers.rpm, ALSA, and Myth. ALSA works,
aplay will play all the sounds. I'm using XFree86-4.2.1 w/ Nvidia
Geforce2 Integrated driver.
Mythfrontend starts, but when I try and watch TV, I get the following
"Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
strange error flushing buffer ...
Couldn't find Xv support, exiting"
Typing xvinfo gets:
"X-Video Extension version 2.2
Adapter #0: "video4linux"
number of ports: 1
.... continues for a page or so."
Based on a post here, I added the following to my XFree86Config-4 "Load
GLcore and Load xie" under modules, so that it looks like the following:
Also of note, the Mandrake setup will only let me select 16bit color for
all resolutions :(
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm guessing it is the video driver
that is causing the error with Myth. If so, how do I go about getting a
better one and updating it?
