Hi,

If I want to watch live tv or recordings all I get is a black screen and
"waiting for free video buffers timed out". Watching recordings with
XINE is not a problem. I have tried with version 0.16 and the CVS
version of a few days ago both having the problem. I use a PVR250 for
recording and both the VGA and TV out of my pundit for watching.

Any idea wath the problem can be?

This is the output of mythfrontend:
