I am running trunk 24586 and with this upgrade started having issues 
when I back out of a recording I am watching.  The menu will display for 
1 to 5 seconds and then the screen will go blank.  No matter what I do 
after the screen goes blank I can not get the picture back until I 
restart X.  This is happening on two different front ends running fedora 
12 with the same video card.  When I skip forward and backward while 
watching a recorded show the menu will display briefly before going back 
to the show.

System info:
Fedora 12
VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 9500 GT (rev a1)
 mythbackend --version

I have the bare minimum in my xorg.conf file.

Any suggestions would be appreciated or let me now if I should post this 
in a different list.


This was caused by my lack of knowledge.  It appears that the many changes
being made for the new version of mythtv did not play nice with some of
the existing libraries.  I needed to remove all of the libraries and let
the compile insert everything.  Once this was done everything worked fine.
