Switching VT terminals while in LiveTV or video playback does not restore screen

Reported by: chuckmarcotte@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version:
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


If mythfrontend is at a menu, I can switch the VT to another X or text VT and back again with no issues in screen restoration. If I am watching LiveTV or watching video playback, and I switch to another VT and then back again, the screen stays black and no video is displayed.

I can then kill the mythfrontend process (from a text VT) and the desktop is restored on the X VT. Several error messages about buffering the video appear in the shell where I started mythfrontend.

Suggested behavour:

Upon a VT switch away while any video is playing, pause the video playback. Upon a VT switch back to the mythfrontend, the video will be paused and the current frame can be repainted/refreshed based in the VT switch (VT event ?).

If this is too difficult, just have the frontend exit to the main menu.
