OK, runing mythfrontend in a xterm I was able to capture this:

vo: X11 running at 720x480 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html !
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

So given this. Does anyone have a working mplayer setup for running
on a system where X is the ivtv-fb module for the PVR-350?
