I've been using auto (which picks xv) and -V xv.

I don't seem to have any problems with the buttons not
being recongnized (it's easy to quit out of my
sound-only DVD :-)
I was able to get it working, but I'm a little
confused as to the solution.
xine -pfhq --no-splash -V xshm dvd://
The "xshm" got the DVD working from within mythdvd.
Adding a --deinterlace got rid of the artifacts that
seem to be showing up.
Does this mean that mythtv is not using xv? I had a
quick browse through the code, and it seems that xshm
is an extra level used within xv (videoout_xv.cpp) ...
but some of the articles in the mythtv-users archive
seem to say that you use xshm if your xv isn't
If mythtv isn't doing what it's supposed to, is there
something I should be doing to use xv?
Thanx for any insight,
