I'm trying to use MythTV on a setup using vesafb as the X driver (mainly
because a native one doesnt exist for my vid card yet).
I can use xawtv, but I have to provide the options -fb -nodga to be able to do
it, which is probably whats screwing me up here.
The error message I'm getting from MythTV tho, is rather bizarre:
Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
libavcodec: CPU flags: mmx mmxext 3dnow
strange error flushing buffer ...
Couldn't find Xv support, exiting
An X box pops up for a while, and dissapears again promptly. I have xv
Incidentally, I tried running mythfrontend, just to check it out, however I
couldnt click the mouse on it, my mouse cursor kept going BEHIND the window
(and I noticed the window did not have any window decorations). I'll assume
this is because its not ment to be run directly *grin*.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
*sigh* I also just found out the underlying web server xmltv uses to grab its
listings does not have my cable provider listed ... what a pain in the butt.
