I've only just noticed this problem but it's happening for me too in 
MythVideo. It's particularly noticeable with episodes of Andromeda, 
where the beginning 'quotation' screen isn't shown when playing videos, 
unless I rewind back to the beginning. I don't have the same problem on 
TV recordings. I use the Internal player in MythVideo, and am using the 
Ubuntu 0.20.2 packages.
