Sorry Daniel, didnt realise you had added debug, and you were looking 
for the after log, not the before :-)

I have added the log for a failure against svn8759.

Found out somthing interesting useful. The failures are not random, they 
are against specific channels. On my Uk DVB-T card I have:


All of the * channels fail to show in myth front end, with the now 
dreaded "Error was encountered when displaying Video". This may change 
with the content/aspect ratio, but I have not seen that yet.

If I try to access LiveTV, my DVB-T card is the first card, and so it 
tries to watch the last viewed channel. If that is one of the * 
channels, I get the dreaded message. If I then change to another card 
(dvb-s) I get back into LiveTv on that card. By selecting one of the 
working DVB-T channels by the numerical keypad, I can then get onto the 
DVB-T card channel range succesfully, and surf betweent those channels. 
It is only on a LiveTV transittion, or move from card to card that 
accessing the * channels fails.

Hope that is clear, I have as I said appended the log to the Ticket. It 
shows the log from mythfronntend startup straight into LivetV on a * 
channel, failure to display, then switch to DVB-S  working channel, back 
to Channel4 and a working display.

Hope this is enough for you to diagnose the problem, happy to help with 
anything else.
