    Thumbs down mythmusic stops playing after 10 minutes - screen goes black, audio stops

    Running mythfrontend/mythmusic 0.27 on top of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with XFCE/xubuntu desktop.

    If I leave mythmusic playing a playlist that repeats, the screen goes black and the audio stops playing after about 10 minutes or so, as if a screensaver or power-saving feature has kicked in (DPMS perhaps?).

    Don't see any knob to disable this feature in any of the setup options for mythfrontend.

    What's the easiest way I can stop this from happening (and not have to take a manual step every time I fire up mythfrontend)?

    This seems like a bug, not a feature.


    Workaround for Ubuntu 12.04/Xubuntu:

    DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling) can be disabled under Settings-->Settings Manager-->Power Manager; uncheck "Monitor power management control"
