I'm using mythfrontend version 0.20.20060828-3, installed from the ubuntu
edgy package. I can't get sound to work with mythdvd. Sound seems to work
with all other mythtv components, and it works when playing dvd's in xine
as the mythtv user.
The setup is generic ubuntu, with a fresh install of edgy running both the
frontend and backend. I've gone through logfiles, and have found no
references to sound related errors. I have very little to go on, but here
are a few observations.
* The dvd player field in the frontend setup is blank. I did try
a couple of other players (xine and mplayer), but reverted to
the default mythdvd by blanking out the field. The audio MAY
have disappeared right after trying out the other players, but
I'm not certain of that.
* Sound did work briefly a few days ago, right after installation, but
doesn't work any more with mythdvd. Video continues to work just fine.
Sound continues to work with other mythtv components, and with other
* The logfile /var/lib/mythdvd/mtd.log is no longer being written.
The last entry is two days ago, about the time the audio stopped
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
