Hi all -
I posted a few days ago about problems I've had with my remote frontend (I
get picture, but no sound) on Mandriva x86_64. Never did get a response.
Curiouser and curiouser:
On the same machine, I also have Ubuntu Gutsy x86_64. Mythfrontend is
also installed there. Now...on THIS distro, I have SOUND, but no
Here's a pic of the recordings menu. Note that the thumbnail video works
The following is what I get when I try to watch a recording:
Here is the setup screen for playback of recordings:
Now...both are running two nvidia 7600 GTs in SLI mode, and both are using
Compiz-Fusion. Admittedly, the xorg.conf file isn't optimized in Ubuntu,
because I get crap FPS readings with glxgears, and screensavers are quite
choppy...so I need to optimize it (any pointers for optimizing xorg.conf
for SLI mode/Compiz-fusion would definitely be appreciated). However,
Xine plays .avi files fine without any problems under it, so I don't see
why Mythfrontend shouldn't be able to play videos.
Anyone else seen anything like this...and have a fix?
