[mythtv-users] sound but no video

I've also "upgraded" my QT install from a set of RPMs not distributed by
SuSE.  This was done to get MythMusic working.  Could this be the issue?
Maybe the combo with the upgrade to .15?  I'm trying out ck77b which
looks ok, but it won't play outside of MythTV (eg. Windows Media Player
as a standard mpeg).  

Thanks for the vote of support.  It's nice to know I'm not the only one
with this issue!

Sometimes I have noticed similar problems, all I get is a black screen.

It seems related to the X-Server in some respect, as if I start a new
X-server (as :1) it works fine, but if I switch back to the old X-server
(ctrl-alt-f7), I get the same results again.

I haven't yet worked out what triggers it.
