is the "flashing" you are seeing the auto refresh of the "default"
info on the screen vs what mythtv wants to put up?

I had that even on the 0.5.2 version until I changed the 'WaitTime'
in the config file to a (REALLY) large value. still gets some flashes when
its recording 2 shows as mythtv cycles between like "recording a"
"default" "recording b" where the "Default" seems to be LCDd's default
not mythtv's.

but at least the case lcd finally works, which makes me happy.
dont need to turn on tv now to just listen to music.
