So I have Deleted all Video Sources (per the link) and have started from
scratch. First of all, when doing an analog channel scan, the scan hangs.
The output of the MythBESetup shows
DTVParamHelper::toString() index out of bounds
This is referenced in this bug:
I was getting the same thing when I did a digital scan. The scan would
hang. So I started the scan at a higher number. The scan completed
successfully. So I go into the FE and have LiveTV start immediately into
the Guide. I can choose a station (digital or analog) and when I choose the
station, the screen goes black (but I can still see my little mouse cursor
in the corner) and xrandr runs because the TV changes it's refresh rate to
60Hz. In the FE logs, I'm getting LOTS of this:
NVP(1), Warning: Waited too long for decoder to pause
I've tried VDPAU High and VDPAU Normal. Both give the same issue. If I
kill the mythfrontend.real process and re-open MythFE. I go to LiveTV, and
it starts back in Guide. I then choose a different digital channel and the
same things happens. When LiveTV starts up, it's in the guide, and in the
preview window there is a digital channel playing(MTV2...yay). If I hit
ESCAPE, 50% of the time the video goes full screen and 50% of the time it
stays in the top right corner. If the video is full screen, it appears I
can channel up and down mostly without an issue. I just received a "Video
frame buffering failed too many times." message. What am I doing wrong
here? This is very confusing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
