hm does X to be run as root aswell? i set mythfrontend setuid root ug+s
and that helped with libddmpeg.
i changed the via_drv.o
for the one from the self compiled XFree (4.3.99-902) stated in some
the problem with the grey fog and the picture moved to the side is gone
with that (aswell as the DRI support, but i can live with that, at least
for the moment)
so for the moment i'm happy that everything works just as it is supposed
i still have 2 questions:
1) i'm missing about 10-20 pixels on each side of the picture (panels
not visible and tv-image cut off) some guy on the viaarena - os-forum
told me that's because of Option "TVVScan" "over" in XFConfig-4 and that
theres nothing to do about that, is that true? (without overscan there
are ugly borders around the picture)
2) is it possible to specify a channel on another input than the tuner?
my parents posess a b&o television set with a built in sat-tuner so i
cant use the output of that, but the television has an s-video output
(which shows exactly whats currently displayed on tv afaik) that i could
connect to the s-video input of my pvr250.
how do i setup my mythbox that s-video in is e.g. on channel 99 or some
so long & thanks once again
