#8492: Video Playback Issues
 Reporter:  anonymous         |       Owner:  ijr        
     Type:  defect            |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  minor             |   Milestone:  unknown    
Component:  MythTV - General  |     Version:  Unspecified
 Severity:  medium            |     Mlocked:  0          
 MythTV .23-fixes svn
 Avermedia Hybrid Volar Max,
 .10beta version of h826d driver,
 ATI fglrx 10.4 binary driver

 1. "Failed to reinitialize video output" when attempting to view live 1080
 2. 720 streams display 2 identical images ( deinterlacing problem) on top
 of one another vertically on the same screen.

 3. Playback of DVDs demonstrate the aforementioned problems. As playback
 proceeds from the menus ( displays 2 identical images (interlaced) ) to
 the actual movie ( displays most of the image but not all of it on the
 screen * (progressive) ), the screen constantly flickers as it attempts to
 display the image on my monitor at full-screen resolution, i.e. 1920x1080.

 Some of these problems MIGHT be related to ATI's driver, but not all of
 them. Item 1 used to work properly until about a couple of weeks ago ...
 When ATI releases their next binary driver, I'll try it to see if any
 positive change occurs, but I'm willing to bet that it won't remove the
 error, "Failed to reinitialize video output".
