#9543 closed Bug Report (Fixed)

Cannot start Picture-in-Picture (pip)

Reported by: Vincent Olivieri <fivenote@…> Owned by: markk
Priority: major Milestone: 0.24.1
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: yes


After upgrading from 0.23 to 0.24, picture-in-picture stopped working. When I try to open a PIP, the 2nd tuner starts recording, but I get a black PIP window. If I switch active windows, the new active window starts playing from the beginning of the recording and the other one goes into the black PIP window. mythfrontend.log shows no errors.

What other information can I provide? Thank you.

I am also seeing this, this used to work with earlier 0.24 releases. The PIP is blank regardless of the source or tuner.

In case anyone else finds this ticket - PiP and PBP have now been disabled in both master and fixes/0.24 for the time being. I don't expect they will be re-instated until 0.25 at the earliest.

Re-enable Picture in Picture and Picture By Picture.

There is still a lot of work to be done to clean this up properly but I realised my obvious mistake when I broke PiP in the first place.
