Hello list-members,

Does anyone have a clue as to why the playback/liveTV on mythfrontend 
has wrong colors? I see nothing suspicious in the log output from

My setup is a P4 with a ATI Radeon X300 card + PVR350 running Fedora 4 
and Myth 0.18.1. I am using the DVI output. The recorded material is OK 
and playback with mplayer works fine *before* mythfrontend has run. 
Afterwards mplayer shows the same blueish colors, but only when using XV 
for output (whereas -vo X11 remains OK). Restarting the X-server makes 
mplayer -vo xv work again. So, has the X server (or the XV part) been 
put in a bad state?

Thanks in advance for any hints.
