    dvd playback color problem in hardy

    I recently upgraded to Hardy... and now, on random occasions,
    I get this weird thing with colors being reversed in DVD playback.
    The machine is a Thinkpad R61e, I'm fairly experienced, the upgrade
    went well, the playback software I'm using is VLC... quite odd the
    way this is *not* a consistent thing, sometimes when I reboot after
    a day of doing other things and try the very same DVD, it works!

    Any ideas, guri out there?

    Thanks!

    You could try running VLC from the command line and see if there are any relevant messages when the reverse-video thing happens. FWIW I use VLC on a T60 and have never had any trouble.

    Though the inconsistent nature does seem odd... it might be connected to if you listen to music etc. or use the GStreamer backend prior to launching VLC. See if when the colours are inverted your XV_HUE is set to like 178 or something...

    even if I change 179 to 0 - the color is the same, in any application

    What's the output of both when the colour is normal, and when the colour is inverted?
    Code:
    xvinfo | grep -A2 XV_HUE
