When I select the wither the mythvideo or  video manager buttons there is a
slightly noticable blink of the button but the appropriate function does not

I ha mythvideo working just fine under .17, I've obvioulsy screwed up
something in the process of the upgrade to 18.1. 

I guess it's possible that the package that include mythvideo did not get
installed, here I suffer from little debian knowledge and I don't know where
to look to see if the package was installed or determine what files are
included with the mythvideo package.

Have you tried:
#apt-get update
#apt-get install mythvideo

On the xbox?  If that comes out ok saying it is at the latest version then
it is installed.  Now one thing I noticed was I had to have the same
directory for mythvideo on the frontend and the backend.

i.e. /mnt/videos/Movies

on both the frontend and the backend.

Now if you can see the list of you movies they just don't play, for example
you click on them and "load..." pops up as the video tries to load but then
doesn't play, add:


to the launch command for mythvideo.
