Step 1 in troubleshooting... read the last parts of the output and
look for words like "Error" as they are important indicators that
something went wrong. Ah... look at that...

It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read DOCS/HTML/en/devices.html#xv!
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

Did you run xvinfo to verify Xv support? Did you try playing the dvd
using mplayer outside of mythtv? Did you try changing the mplayer
flags to -vo x11?
You must be the change you wish to see in the world. - Gandhi
