Hi gang, I've been messing around with using Xine for DVD playback from
within and outside of Myth, and I've noticed something odd on my
production box. I'm using FC1, ivtv 0.19--the latest stable build from

Whenever I run Xine, it works fine, but once I go back and try to watch
live TV, I get a blank black screen. Audio is playing fine, but I cannot
bring anything up for video. I have to cold boot the system to get Myth
back. A simple reboot doesn't do it.

I'm taking a wild guess that this has something to do with the Xv output
of the two apps using the display? Dunno.

Output is via an FX5200 card via DVI, but I had this on Svideo out as
well before I switched to DVI. It's a little odd, and I'm just wondering
if someone has seen this before.
