    Myth Video + X11 Screen Number

    Hi,

    Due to various reasons I'm running my MythTV frontend with 2 Displays (Screen 0 17' LCD and Screen 1 TV PAL output over S-Video).

    I can change the screen number that Mythfrontend uses to use my TV but when I try and use Myth Video to look at old AVI's of the family the video plays on screen 0 (LCD).

    Is there a way to force the player to use a different screen. I've seen that there is an option in Myth frontend to configue how mplayer is called but no matter how hard I look I can't find an option for the screen number.


    Regards
    Ian Dobson

    Re: Myth Video + X11 Screen Number (Solved)

    OK, problem solved.

    I ended up manually editing xorg.conf so that the TV is screen 0 and the LCD is screen 1.

    By default the screens are the over way round which worked for me as long as the LCD was attached. But as soon as I disconnected the LCD the display configuration went mad and TV pnly displayed part of the Myth frontend.
