Actually, I am using an saa7134-based card (an Asus Digimatrix box).
This still would not explain why perfectly good video playback occurs
when launched directly. Here's a walkthrough:
1.) Power up the box. "X" and "mythfrontend" are started via a respawn
entry in my /etc/inittab
2.) Choose "Play DVD" command in mythtTV. xine starts up, switches to
full-screen black, X cursor appears for a second, then immediately
returns to mythTV DVD menu.
3.) Press Alt+F1. Login. Type: export DISPLAY="localhost:0.0". Run
xine command (same as specified in DVD setup in mythTV). Press Alt+F7
(to go back to X). DVD (audio AND video) are playing perfectly.
Hope this gives a little more info as to the problem I'm running into.

>>I have a rather interesting problem with getting MythDVD working
properly. I am able to launch DVD playback from the console, using xine
or mplayer or ogle (all three work). However, when I launch any of these
three players from *within* MythDVD, using the *exact same* command
specified in the MythDVD setup, the program comes up for a few seconds,
and before playback begins, the program crashes and returns to the
MythDVD menu. I get the same thing no matter which player I try to use.
