Thanks, that provides a very useful stop-gap fix to the problem.   I 
still want to get the internal MythTV player working correctly, but at 
least for now I don't have to exit the mythfrontend to play back the 
recorded streams.

I've been having a discussion on the pcHDTV message board regarding the 
problems I listed here, and have been provided several suggestions to 
try, so hopefully I'll be able to crack this nut sooner or later.  :-)
