There's a configuration option on one of the screens that says "use
Xv".  Appearance, maybe.  Just select it and restart the front end.

I have an ATI 9200 SE and I'm running Xorg, and for some reason
selecting the Xv option turns all of my people blue :(

I used to have the same problem with xine and DVDs, but
Option      "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"
in my xorg.conf fixed it for xine (just not for mythtv).


The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If you can't
ignore it, top it. If you can't top it, laugh at it. If you can't laugh
at it, it's probably deserved.
