LiveTV makes mythfrontend freeze

Reported by: jimi@… Owned by: danielk

Cc: Isaac Richards Ticket locked: no


Basicly mythfrontend freezes when trying to watch LiveTV. I start mythfrontend, and go directly to watching live tv, and then get a blank screen where X11 freezes.

Here is what might be critical in myth.log (see attachment):

[mpeg @ 0xb766a360]Parser not found for Codec Id: 94210 !

X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
  Major opcode:  140

                        probably due to a driver bug or limitation.
                        You might not get any video, but we'll try anyway.

Here is the entire gdb-output:

The VideoOutputXv? error would not result in a freeze, at worst it would mean the video screen would be blank, but you would still hear the audio and the UI would be responsive.

Also, if X11 freezes it is a X11 bug or a driver/os bug.

When I use mplayer directly in X11, I don't have any problems with watching TV.

When using mythfrontend it results in a freeze, blank screen, no sound and the IU is unresponsive. mythfrontend is the only program where X11 freezes.

Anyone have an idea what might be causing this ?
