Am running a ECS 780G board with ubuntu 8.04 and the latest ATI proprietary
driver. When ever I tried to run mythfrontend I got a segfault. I can't
find the link where I found the information but in one of the forums an
supposed ATI tech said that the new ATI cards no longer have traditional
video overlay but are doing "TexturedVideo" overlays. He/she recommened
Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
Option "TexturedVideoSync" "on"
Option "VideoOverlay" "off"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
Adding the TexturedVideo options and turning videooverlay and opengloverlay
off, gives me perfect HDTV and SDTV playback. I set mythtv to use XVMC as
the mpeg library. Have bios set to allow video card to have 128mb of memory
and have 4gb of memory in the box. I originally tried turning videooverlay
off and opengloverlay off and it allowed me to play video using "standard"
and "libmpeg" renderers but system couldn't keep up with frame rate. The
addition of the TexturedVideo entries got me up and running.
Hope that might be of some help to someone.
