Hi Folks,

first of all i'd like to thank every developer that helped building  
this fine product! It's working like a charm - at least on my  
dedicated linux+mythtv box!!

Now to my problems:

I have a MacBook as my primary computer and had the idea to install  
mythfrontend on it. So I did a svn checkout and ran "mythtv/contrib/ 
OSX/osx-packager.pl" which worked and did not give any errors. But  
calling MythFrontend.app afterwards gives this:

dyld: Symbol not found: _otv_module_class
   Referenced from: /Users/christian/development/mythtv/mythtv/ 
   Expected in: flat namespace

Trace/BPT trap

What could that be? What can I do?

Second question: As I try to watch the recorded shows (recorded using  
DVB-S) via NFS my quicktime hangs and I have to quit it brutal. So I  
googled a bit and found out that one has to install a quicktime  
plugin for watching mpeg2.

What are your experiences with watching mpeg2 on OSX? Do you use  
something like mplayer or vlc?
