[mythtv-users] Fedora 8 video playback issues

I upgraded my FE to Fedora 8. I use MythTV for HD recording.
The backend is still FC6. It still records just fine. This appears to be
an FE issue....

vlc and mplayer will play mythtv recorded .mpg files....

If I go into the mythfrontend a 'select a recording to watch' I see
the pre-view recording
play fine in the PIP window on the screen.

If I select something to watch from the mythfrontend 'select a
recording to watch:' screen
or if I do mythtv to see LiveTV or if I do LiveTV from the
mythfrontend, I hear the
audio fine, but I don't get a picture. I get something that looks like
a garbage buffer
on the screen....

This worked fine with the FC6 install that I had.

libdts is missing from my Fedora 8 installation, so I re-compiled my mythtv
binaries ( did a make distclean first ) and disabled libdts from the
configuration.

I've tried this 'standard', mpeg2, and XvMC playback methods... they all give
the same results.

The mythtv output doesn't really show anything that I see an an error....

this is the ONLY thing that looks like it might be an issue....
