I've followed the instructions in this email (in combination with those 
at 
http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=21910&group_id=102048) 
to set up the hw decoding on my epia m10k and everthing installed 
correctly, I thought.  However, everytime I attempt to decode an mpeg2 
stream on the m10k, mythfrontend dies a horrible death with the 
following complaint:

2004-09-30 22:21:26 Changing from None to WatchingRecording

mythfrontend: xvmcvideo.c:204: render_state: Assertion 
`render->mv_blocks' failed.

I think that the via module is loaded correctly, dmesg reports:

[drm] Initialized via 1.5.0 20040907 on minor 0: VIA Technologies, Inc. 
VT8623 [Apollo CLE266] integrated CastleRock graphics
[drm] Used old pci detect: framebuffer loaded

And I see the folloing in my Xorg.0.log file:

(II) VIA(0): [XvMC] Initialized XvMC extension.

There is a section in the document linked to above, "Checking out and 
testing the hw mpeg2 player." which I haven't been able to do as the 
mp2decoder configure script complains:

configure: error: Could not find XvMC wrapper library.

I haven't been able to find much on this 'wrapper' layer.  I suspect 
this might be newer stuff and am thinking about trying to check out an 
earlier set of the mp2decoder code.

Anyhow, I'm hoping someone might have a tip as to what might be causing 
my mythfrontend problem.
