Hi

I have just installed mythtv successfully with a hauppauge pvr-350 (ivtv driver for the tv card, nvidia driver for the graphics card), following Jarod Wilson's guide. It works fine for the most part, but if I open mythfrontend, and watch tv, then close it and try and watch a movie through mplayer, the movie window closes straight away. The converse is also true - if I watch a movie first, then open mythfrontend to watch tv, myth will not find a tv picture.

Is there anything in particular that I have to do to solve this problem?

Thanks

D3viant,
why don't you try to open mplayer from the console to see what error shows after the application closes after using mythfrontend

Hi

I have since fixed this problem - turns out to be an issue with the new NVidia drivers - it needs an option in the xorg.conf file.

What was the option in the xorg.conf file? Was it the part about changing the Device "nv" to Device "nvidia?" I am just curious as I plan on setting up my mythtv "server" this week.

Thanks!
