There exist cases where one graphics display system or another fails to show menus or video properly. These instructions are for forcing the frontend to use OpenGL for display.


  • Start MythFrontend
  • Choose Setup
  • Choose Appearance
  • Highlight Paint Engine
  • Use the arrow to select OpenGL
  • Choose the Next button. Keep choosing it until it turns into a Finish button. Select Finish and you are done.

Note: can not run properly when the Paint Engine is set to OpenGL. If you need to run, the setup application, first reverse these instructions, setting the 'Paint Engine to Qt.
