Since I'm getting a feeling that in mythtv-users, there's nobody that
knows about DirectFB, I thought I'd forward this mail to here as well.
It seems I'm not the only one having this problem, it'd be great to get
some help on it. I hope nobody objects to this mail in developer list.
Best regards, juhis
After some struggle I've now got my MythTV almost working with a DVB-C
card and DirectFB output. I'm using directfb from cvs and I've tried
with both 0.14 and cvs versions of myth, with the same results. I'm
using linux-2.6.3 with the kernel dvb drivers.
The problem is the picture on the tv, both watching a recoding or trying
out live-tv. The picture is...strange. Have a look at the attached
photo. The colors are somehow mixed up. But I know it's not too far off,
I've seen something like this before, but I don't remember when and in
what context. All the recordings look beautiful when watched eg. with
mplayer, so the dvb-c setup should be working. Also, I actually have one
recording, probably done when I was running myth under linux-2.4 with
older DVB drivers, that works perfectly using current mythtv with
directfb output. Pretty strange.
Anyhow, is there anybody out there....that has any idea what's going
wrong in dfb output?
