XvMC freezes my MythTV-system
 
Hi!

I have been playing with XvMC a little to reduce CPU usage when wathing HDTV with MythTV, but I have got a problem. when I'm using XvMC my system freezes now and then, I have to push the reset button to restart it.

I'm using driver 9746 and Linux kernel 2.6.18 (-gentoo-r6). My graphics is a integrated 6150 on a ASUS A8N-VM CSM.

This is the last output from Myth when the system freeze:
Code:

And this is a 'top' in the same second as the system freezes (yes, I'm running Myth as root ;-)

Thans for any help!

Sorry, missed that ...

But I have gone throught that post and I didn't find anything.

I have a single core processor, kernel 2.6.18 (-gentoo) and I have the latest BIOS (1007) for my ASUS A8N-VM CSM. So I have attached a log-file, but it was run at the same time as Xorg because the computer locks completely and I can't run it afterwards.

How consistently does this reproduce?
Does this reproduce if you're not using the ConnectedMonitor option?

Please point me to content which reliably reproduces the problem.

Hi and thanks for the answer!

I tried without the ConnectedMonitor option but then I did only get video output over VGA and a resolution of 1280x720 - but I noticed one thing, the system didn't freeze when using XvMC! So I've been trying a little and this is my results:

XvMC@1920x1080: System freeezes
XvMC@1280x720: Ok
ffmpeg/libmpeg2@1920x1080: Ok
ffmpeg/libmpeg2@1280x720: Ok

So it looks like the problem only occurs when I'm running XvMC in 1920x1080. I'm using an integrated 6150 GPU thats shares the RAM - can that be a problem? But do XvMC consume more Video-RAM than ffmpeg for example?

Re: XvMV freezes my MythTV-system
 
Are you stating that this also reproduces with a CRT when doing 1920x1080?

If you wish to use a display device other than a CRT, then you should be adding the UseDisplayDevice option, not the ConnectedMonitor option. See the driver README for more information on the correct usage of these options.

Please point me to content which reliably reproduces the problem.
