I do see this as part of mythfrontend:
2004-08-22 20:06:53 Using XV port 69

My xvinfo returns lots of information ... the start
looks like:
X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
  Adaptor #0: "ATI Radeon Video Adapter"
    number of ports: 1
    port base: 69
    operations supported: PutVideo PutImage

As near as I can tell, I have a "single" head
configuration using the GATOS ati.4.4.0 radeon driver
(which includes the tvout code), and my TV out is set
up in "clone" mode.  But this happens also happens if
I disable the TV, and only use a monitor and the
standard Xorg 6.7.0 radeon driver.

I'm just curious 'cause it sounds like xshm is not xv,
but it looks like mythfrontend is using xv and xine
can only access it using xshm.

Anyway, thanx for your questions.
