#8108: dvd playback on via epia M10k causes mythfrontend or X to segfault

     Type:  defect                        |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  minor                         |   Milestone:  unknown   
Component:  MythTV - DVD Playback         |     Version:  0.22-fixes
 Severity:  medium                        |     Mlocked:  0         
 I'm experiencing this on two epia m10k boards. One mounts ubuntu 9.10 and
 mythfrontend branches/release-0-22-fixes (22594): it plays DVD intro and
 then causes mythfrontend to segfault without givin me any clue. The other
 mounts ubuntu 10.4 and mythfrontend 0-22-fixes (23193) and causes X to
 segfault in the same situation; on this second machine a look at Xorg log
 reveals this: "(EE) CHROME(0): [XvMC] ViaXvMCCreateSurface: Too many
 surfaces !"
 Googling a bit I found that something similar had previously been reported
 here: http://www.mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-
 users/2010-January/278065.html but it doesn't talk about dvd playback and
 the proposed fixes goes beyond my linux knowledge (and my little spare
 I'm quite sad because I finally managed to assemble two working frontends
 for my daughter and living room.... (as you can argue from the old
 hardware involved, it took me a lot of time :)
 Thank you in advance and bye, Alessandro (IT).
