[mythtv] Problems getting Mythtv to show a picture.
Tue, 10 Sep 2002 09:26:23 -0400 (EDT)
I played with the sample settings with no luck, I finally found
out one of the problems. I started looking through the output of strace
and realized it was opening /dev/dsp and hanging.
I killed artsd and it now gets past that point. I'm still unsure why xmms
can open /dev/dsp and other programs can't when artsd is running.
Now I'm getting an error about Xv.
Sometimes I see a window flash on the screen, sometimes not.
xvinfo still shows what I pasted in a previous email.
Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
strange error flushing buffer ...
problem setting sample rate, exiting
Couldn't find Xv support, exiting
I'm guessing my old nVidia is junk and I need to upgrade to a newer better
supported card. I'll try to pick up an ATI 7500 this weekend and see if
it's Xv support is better.
