[mythtv-users] black screen at "watch tv" -- RingBuf (fd -1) error

After configuring and installing ivtv, mythtv, etc, I'm now getting an error
when trying to go to "Watch TV"

I am running everything under the mythtv user on the same computer:

My backend logs are at http://rafb.net/p/9WmL6y65.html, frontend logs at

I think the key here is:
2007-01-19 10:23:35.348 RingBuf(/var/lib/mythtv//1036_20070119102328.mpg):
Invalid file (fd -1) when opening

Unfortunately that is *very* much a valid file, as when I do `mplayer
'/var/lib/mythtv//1036_20070119102328.mpg'` the file plays just fine (until
the backend expires it).

If anyone has any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate it, its my first time
with mythtv and I'd rather not use MCE.
