[mythtv-users] MythTV frontend crashes with recordings that have a resolution change

Hi all,

When recording via firewire from a set top box occasionally the channel 
is changed within the first second or so of the recording due to delays 
in the set top box. This appears to be a problem if the output 
resolution switches from a standard to high definition when the 
recording is played back. The first second or so before the switch is 
played and then the MythTV frontend just crashes and exits.

Examining the mpg file produced shows that it does have multiple 
resolutions in it and this appears to be a problem for most video 
players except for VLC for some reason. I've tried many players on both 
windows and linux and only VLC doesn't crash and plays back  flawlessly.

I'm wondering if there is some way to fix this other than attempting to 
make VLC my default playback mechanism?
