> Hi all,
> I've previously had BBC HD working nicely in Mythtv.  I don't watch much
> on HD, but when I went to watch it today, it started up fine and then
> after a few seconds of playback a second "copy" of the video appeared in
> the top left of the screen.  It takes up approx 1/4 of the total screen
> area and is an exact copy of the HD video that is being played.  Both
> copies of the video play ok, but the 1/4 size copy blocks out part of
> the full size video.
> I've no idea what I've changed to cause this to happen - it only happens
> on BBC HD (I dont have any other HD channels to test with).  It happens
> everytime, and one it's started, the only fix is to exit the player and
> start watching again.  Seeking in the video works ok and both copies of
> the video seek.
> The HD programs I've recorded playback fine on my other frontend (same
> mythtv version), so it's not a problem in the recorded stream.
> I'm not sure where to start looking for what is wrong.  Has anyone else
> seen this problem?
> I'll see what info I can get out of the Mythfrontend logs, but any
> pointers as to what debug flags to pass or where to look and what to
> check would be appreciated.
> System is Gentoo Linux + mythtv-0.21_p17722
> Nvidia drivers version 173.14.12 for a GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i
> Thanks!
> Robert.
