    Tvtime freezes, no picture, no mouse control

    I have been using Tvtime for several years and never had trouble with the video until now. Now it opens, but it's frozen. There is no picture and no sound, just a black screen that I can't control in any way. Even to close it, I have to go through the terminal.

    I can still get channels using Mplayer, so the tuner should not be the problem. However, it is an Hauppauge 950.

    I was using Lucid on both partitions. Initially, one quit, but not the other. About a month later the other quit while I was watching which makes me think it may be something I have simply hit on the keyboard. I have since upgraded to Maverick on one and reinstalled Tvtime to no avail.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if this helps, but when I try Tv-viewer, I get a segmentation fault error. Any suggestions?

    SO the segmentation fault was a red herring, but here's something I stumbled on. With the cable unhooked, tvtime is fine. It responds to the mouse. It just has no signal. However, hook up the cable and open it and I get a black, unresponsive screen.

    Unbelievably, I found the problem, and it was so simple. I'm embarrassed to say, but the channel was causing all that trouble. I had been configuring through the terminal, apparently incorrectly, to change the channel from one that doesn't exist on our system. When I went into the xml file and changed it, the problem was solved.
