#8629: I see Mythtv background instead of video

     Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  minor                    |   Milestone:  unknown   
Component:  MythTV - Video Playback  |     Version:  Trunk Head
 Severity:  medium                   |     Mlocked:  0         

 I was on #25129 and everything was OK. Since I upgraded to #25216, I have
 this problem on an opensuse 11.2 system: Upon starting TV or any video
 (recordings and movies) I can hear the audio but I just see the Graphite
 background instead of the video.

 I can bypass the problem by pressing Pause twice (the second time brings
 the video to the front) or the S (schedule) key twice for live tv (I can
 see video in the preview window by the way).

 Also, my keyboard has a volume dial. When I use it the kde volume control
 appears, and when it leaves the screen it leaves a gap with the graphite
 background again (pausing and resuming fixes that, too).

 The keyboard volume "issue" has been on and off between mythtv upgrades,
 but now I see the graphite background, whilst before a black rectangle
 used to remain on screen.

 I tried switching to qt renderer instead of opengl but it didn't help.

 The system has a nVidia 9500 card with the 195.36.15 driver, attached to a
 lg W2234S monitor.

 Another opensuse 11.2 (atom VDPAU HDMI to TV) and a debian 5 (9500 to TV -
 HDMI) don't show this problem.

 Do you need my xorg.conf?

 By the way, I like all the audio changes!!!
