[mythtv-users] Can't get mythvideo to work

This has to do with mplayer not liking the fbdev X driver for some
reason.  You can change the mplayer command line so that it has the
switch -vo x11 instead of -vo xv (I think it is).  But on mine that was
incredibly slow and not worth it.  I tried loading the new ivtvdev
driver, and that's faster, but I still need the aforementioned switch to
get it to work and it crashes on me anyway.

I have the exact same problem and I have not yet been able to get it
running.  I have even made sure the videos are in MPEG2 format (for the
350's decoder) just in case ... no dice.
