Was wondering if anyone has tried to play back mythtv ATSC recordings
from the UPNP server of a MythTV master back end using the pre-installed
HP Media Software on a Vista laptop.
[Yes, I know there are other media players out there that work w/o
having to load in the whole mythtv front end package. But this is my
wife's computer - trying something new w/o repercussions... well,
there's a reason she has her own laptop.]
NTSC recordings play back fine. But ATSC recordings of standard
definition broadcasts show the first frame (if I recall correctly) and
ATSC recordings of high definition broadcasts (720 or 1080) show
nothing. I don't think it's a client power problem as it's a duel core.
Also, the fact the ATSC standard definition programming will not play
points more to configuration problems. Possibly a missing codec?
