Sounds like an Xv problem (restarting X resets Xv). Are you using xine
with the -vo xv driver? If so, check out the thread
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/72823 , which
references the thread http://mysettopbox.tv/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1597 .
Khan, this may be your problem, too, if using Xv. If you're using a
PVR-350 with the 350's TV out, it's not the problem, though (since the
350's TV out does not support Xv).
