#1156 closed defect

pvr-350 output always going to MPEG decoder, instead of xv.. even when option is off in config — at Version 4

Description (last modified by Isaac Richards)

Under TV settings / General playback, setting the "Use the PVR-350's TV out" option does not effect output. Myth still pumps TV out to the PVR's mpeg decoder, instead of to XV.

For example, I still get the PVR-350 full screen guide, and fuser shows /dev/video16 in use by mythbackend. I set my backend to output all debug messages, but did not see anything of note.

The database is definitely updated, as MythTV does show the difference in the config settings...

Myth works with xv now. After installing plugins, xv support was fine. I did an ldconfig after the fact, so perhaps it was using old myth libs?!

Anyhow, it works now...

Ok, this needs to be reopened. This problem only shows itself, if you start mythfrontend with 350/mpeg out, then try to switch to 350/xv out. If you do this, you need to restart mythfrontend for it to make the change to xv out.

Switching from xv to mpeg out works fine, which is why it seemed to work some of the time. I've tested this three times now, to be sure...

Daniel, it's the static 'device_ok' in ivtvdecoder that's causing this. Probably will break other stuff as well.
