[mythtv-users] XvMC output not working

 Hmm... Was this compiled from source or a binary package?

If the former, try recompiling. If the latter, try reinstalling. Sounds
like SOMETHING is corrupted.

Are you seeing anything pointing to possible memory problems in
/var/log/messages? Could actually be bad memory in your box that's
throwing you for a loop. Final possibility; the video card is going bad.

It sounds like we're getting into the realms of a possible hardware
problem here.

Unfortunately looks like this was just a temporary fix.  I came home
from work to find that I'm getting BadAlloc errors once again.  Hmmm
what to think now...
