[mythtv-users] Takes two tries to watch a recording

I was wondering if anybody may have seen this happen before.   It's
rather odd, but on my remote frontend, when you try to watch a
recording (any recording) it will require you to try twice before it
actually plays.

You highlight a show, the preview video works fine.  When I try to
watch the video, the screen goes black for about a minute, then goes
back to the recordings screen where the preview video starts playing
again.  If I try to watch the video again, it works fine and starts
playing almost instantly.


I'm using:
