 I am having problems when playing a show recorded from dvb-t. The
 television broadcasts in 720x576. The recording begins at 16:9
 (commercials) and then switches to 4:3. In that moment, the myth frontend
 freezes for a while (5-20s) and then returns to menu with message 'need to
 change video renderer'.

 I have tried to tweak settings - resolutions, renderes (VPDAU, CPU+ CPU++
 etc), no luck. I am pretty stuck now.

 The backed runs on ubuntu-9.10, mythtv version
 Fronted is on OS X 10.5.8, fronted version 0-22-fixes-20100124_Rev.23230
 (thanks to sniderpad.com).

 I have tried the same playback on ubuntu (9.10) based frontend and this
 works without a problem.

 The log from the OSX frontend is attached.
