I'm having some trouble getting live TV to work with
my MythTV setup (Fedora Core 4, PVR-350). I followed
Jarod's guide and have things mostly working. X11 is
running through the PVR-350's TV out. When I try to
watch live TV, I see garbage (green and pink blocks
all over the screen).
Capture/playback from the command line seems to work:
# cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test_capture.mpg
# mplayer -vo x11 /tmp/test_capture.mpg
But if I run mplayer with "xv" instead of "x11"
# mplayer -vo xv /tmp/test_capture.mpg
I see the same static as when I try to watch live TV.
So it sounds like something is wacky with my MythTV
configuration? Is it passing the wrong args to
I'd appreciate any help. Thanks,
