I would check some stuff at: 
http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-10.html and also play around 
with the Playback settings, if your recording, watching, and your 
booting into a GUI then it's going to be a simple setting in MythTV 
settings that will get you fixed up. I had this problem with an early 
version of .16 or something but I can't, for the life of me, remember 
how I resolved the issue. I think I had to tell Myth to use a different 
codec... not 100% sure though.
