This seems to imply a misunderstanding of how LiveTV functions. LiveTV
does *not* use MPlayer. Myth starts LiveTV by making calls to functions
inside Myth code which play back the LiveTV using Myth code (i.e. not by
starting a separate program with a "command line").
Hope this helps--I haven't been following the thread. If not, ignore me.
