Can you play videos from the command line outside Myth with the same 
flags that you use or are you refering to recorded shows you would like 
to watch after they have been recorded through the internal viewer? Any 
error messages? Crashes? Which player do you use, Xine or mplayer?

Are the video library mounted on the Xbox? What are you running; 
Xebian1.1.x or gentoox?

I'm running an Xbox as a frontend and had no luck with mplayer at all, 
Xine on the other hand worked like a charm for both DVD's and video. I 
couldn't watch video with mplayer at all, I could select one, and the 
screen would freeze and then return to the listing. Turned out that 
mplayer segfaulted for some reason, still unknown, Xine didn't though so 
now I use that.

I'm running Xebian-1.1.4 with 0.18.1

I hope that this will give you some guidance in your search!
