#13551 closed Bug Report - Crash (fixed)

mythfrontend seg fault Live TV and Recording Playback

Reported by: Mike Bibbings Owned by: David Hampton
Priority: minor Milestone: 31.0
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: mythfrontend mheg
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I am seeing mythfrontend seg fault on UK TV Channels which have mheg active, this affects both Live TV and recording playback on both DVB-T2 and DVB-S2.

Disabling "Enable interactive TV" in mythfrontend setup>Video>Playback OSD stops the seg faults.

Attached are gdb backtrace and mythfrontend log
