OK, I've finally had time to try somebody's suggestion of turning off /dev/rtc
syncing using CVS on my EPIA M10000. It helps but I'm still having problems
playing video. What happens is I get roughly double speed video with no
audio. This happens when I skip forward, back and sometimes when I show the
OSD. Eventually it seems to straighten itself out and play normally. If I
pause it, it seems to help too. Sometimes, it just hangs and I have to
I'm thinking I may get a new frontend box. Support for the EPIA HW decoding
seems to be lagging. Is anyone using this platform successfully? Back at
version 0.13 or so, playback was fine. Since that time problems have been
introduced like flickering OSD and now this playback problem. I really like
all the new features of the new versions but the playback is awful.
I'm using Gentoo with epia-sources-2.4.25-r1 and xfree-4.4.0 with the
open-source video drivers (including the new libddmpeg-1.7 from Kenneth).
Any suggestions welcome.
