[mythtv-users] Resolution Change Bug

I've recently run into a problem with recordings on the Comedy Channel. 
I run the trunk, and don't know if the problem is because a change in 
the software, or a change in the source material.

The symptom is that at a well defined point in playback myth restarts 
the player at the beginning of the program. The well defined point is 
where Comcast inserts local commercials. Up to that point the resolution 
is 704x480, but shifts to 528x480 for the local commercial.

The other media players (mplayer, vlc, xine) contend with the resolution 
change, but the native mythfrontend player does not.

Again, this used to be ok, and I don't know if its a Comcast change or a 
new problem in the trunk.
