Comment(by anonymous):

 First I'd like to thank you for your fast replyes.
 I've tryed to produce a backtrace following this howto:
 http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Debugging section "debuggin with ubuntu
 packages", but playing dvds hangs the system and apparmor doesn't start at
 I've tryied to follow instructions given in the link on my first post
 (compiling without opengl and reducing max_surfaces to 14 or 12) without
 luck: live-tv works well as usual (about 25% cpu usage) but dvd playback
 with internal player still hangs "near" menus.
 I can try to investigate this issue a bit if you feel it's worth a try and
 if you can help me a bit, otherwise I'll convince myself to start ripping
 my dvds... If you feel it could be of any use I can try to ask openchrome
 team too.
 another way could be trying to use mplayer instead of internal player for
 dvd playback, but this will force me to learn how to patch mplayer to
 enable epia m mpeg2 acceleration...
 last: if you can point me to any link with some suggestion.....
 thank you for your work, and bye, Alessandro.
 P.S. epia m is obiouvsly a dead platform but I think nowaday it's a cheap
 mobo to create a mythtv frontend (since here in Italy we still use CRT and
 HD tv is far from beeing a standard...)
