I have found that the internal player on XBMC seems to have trouble playing
MythTV recordings. You can tell XBMC to use mplayer and then things work
great. Instead of clicking play click on the title button on the DVD remote
or the white button on the controller. Then choose the play using... option
from the menu. You can select mplayer from the options. Unfortunately I
couldn't find anyway to make it play with mplayer by default, but it isn't
that much trouble once you get used to it.
