Thanks for the info. Doing this revealed something interesting:

If I startup the machine and then launch:
mplayer -vo xv /home/icbu/Desktop/comedy.avi

and the colors are fine. If I then run:


and watch live Tv (colors wrong), then exit and run:

 mplayer -vo xv /home/icbu/Desktop/comedy.avi

The colors are wrong.

x11 however works both before and afterwards (colors are fine):

mplayer -vo x11 /home/icbu/Desktop/comedy.avi

Any ideas?
