Hi all,

I had a perfectly working mythtv setup and when I recently ran apt-get
dist-upgrade I broke something (at least I think that is what did it.) 
I'm running FC3 with a PVR-500 and installed using apt-get install
mythtv-suite.  My capture card works fine, I can capture with cat
/dev/video0 > temp.mpg and play it back fine in mplayer.  The preview view
also works in the Previously recorded window, and the backend seems to be
functional.  However, any time I try to watch live TV or view a recording
I'm getting this:

2005-06-28 19:34:12.923 Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
2005-06-28 19:34:19.762 Opening audio device '/dev/dsp'.

2005-06-28 19:34:19.780 Using XV port 122
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  St9bad_alloc

[root at localhost mythtv-0.18.1]# Partial WriteStringList 0
2005-06-28 19:34:20.789 writing to unconnected socket #2

I really can't think of what else to try.  I'm currently trying to compile
from the latest source thinking that might fix the problem but I'm
doubtful that it's going to do the trick.

Any help would be greatly apreciated so I can avoid a fresh install.
