Subject: [mythtv-users] XvMC and MythDVD Internal Player (0.20)
After upgrading to 0.20, I decided to test out the internal
MythDVD player (for the menu support) and found that a DVD plays brilliantly
without XvMC, but does not play at all with it enabled. The following
message is repeated in the terminal output:
NVP: Timed out waiting for free video buffers.
The screen stays black and nothing plays. I am running an nvidia 5200FX
card. Anyone have the same problem?
So, I've narrowed this down to only when playing video in the "Watch
Recordings" screen and MythDVD. Playing MPEG-2 in MythVideo works fine,
just not in the "Watch Recordings" screen and MythDVD. The strange thing is
that I downloaded the 0.19 tree and everything works like a charm. So, it
appears that something changed in the 0.20 release. I haven't done any
special configurations, just a out-of-the-box install. I've tried the last
three releases of the nVidia drivers with the same effect. I'm surprised if
no one seems to be having the same issues as I am, but hey. maybe. Does
anyone have any clue as to what could be happening here? (Please?!?)
