Sounds a little like an issue I sometimes have. 0.24-fixes (mythbuntu)
on Revo (ION 1). If I go to the EPG direct from playback, and then go
back to the playing programme, the screen goes black, but the video is
clearly playing (the sound is there, just a blank screen). If I pause
and unpause the picture somes back. Weird, and since I don't often go
to the epg from playback, not too concerning for me.

My recordings are generally mpeg2 (576i) or h264 (1080i).
