I've recenting got MythTV working enough to watch TV. However, running
the frontend on my laptop has the colours all mangled. There is a lot
of brown and blue - it might be some kind of colour inverse, but it.s
not like black goes to white.
I've noticed it before on normal playback on some video files, and I put
it down to codec error. When gxine shows it mangled, VLC usually gets
it right. Or vice versa. But obviously I need to solve the problem to
get MythTV usable.
I've tried googling, but can't make headway. Has anyone else
Backend is a Compaq deskpro with an AverMedia card. Front end is a Dell
Inspiron 6400 with a Mobility Radeon x1300, running the proprietary ATi
drivers, v8.25.18 (as per dapper). Both are running dapper, though
MythTV is an unofficial package of 0.20 from SVN 12 9 December 2006.
