#1516 closed defect (duplicate)

OSD's are not cleared or too late

Reported by: mrvane@… Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.20
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords: OSD clear
Cc: Ticket locked: no


OSD clearing is broken for me since running SVN 9364, it started the update before, not sure what number. I didn't have any problems with 9116. The strange part is that not all OSD's have the same problem. The item "1: Tuner" when entering liveTV is never cleared. The information OSD (i) (playback time/realtime info) is never cleared, but stops being updated after the configured amount of time (3 s) The channelinfo OSD (o) however, is cleared but only after 30 seconds instead of the configured 3 seconds. Display: via + via XvMC

Sounds like a dup of #1461.

This isn't a duplicate of #1461, at least I don't believe it to be the same issue. I've attached a patch which fixes this.

The root cause of this issue was that a value of zero in the <fadeaway> of osd.xml resulted in draw never actually running to remove the OSD.

If someone experiencing the partial fade problem in #1461 could test to see if this also fixes that issue.

This fix did not change anything for me on the "watermarking osd" problem. I am using via_xvmc_vld on modular xorg with the OpenChrome? SVN driver. My <fadeaway> is set to 30 in osd.xml. I am using the MythTVMediaCenterOSD theme. I'll try to change the theme. Changing the <fadeaway> to 1 made the OSD stay completely. When I adjust the sound, the "Volume" OSD pops-up which fades away completely. When I skip, the OSD stays as a watermark.

I can reproduce this with XvMC surface composite OSD, I'll look at fixing it there, which will hopefully fix it for the other cases.
