View Full Version : [mythbuntu] Green screen .. help please

January 22nd, 2009, 04:03 AM
Hi All,

I have been running Mythbuntu quite sucessfully for some time, however the last time I re-booted the machine, I have found that whenever I play a recording or watch liveTV all I get is a green screen, I can see the program content ... it just all green.

(There may have been some recent updates ... and this is the 1st time I have re-booted since ..)

It doesn't seem to be Xorg, the Plasma, or the Intel driver as I can use it fine as a normal computer in full color, it is only when I am using Mythtv for recordings (that previously were fine in full color) or LiveTV that I get the issue.

It seems the video decoding is broken for some reason.

Can anyone tell me what to do to resolve this?

Ok, an update. It seems that xvmc is broke for resolutions > 720x560 with the latest intel driver.

A workaround is to use OpenGL as the renderer until the driver issue is resolved.
