Default XawTv and overlay mode


Is it possible to run XawTV with Overlay mode instead of grabdisplay?

When I try to switch to Overlay the screen goes black, I can hear sound and get this error:
ioctl: VIDIOC_OVERLAY(int=1): Invalid argument

My Configuration:
Ubuntu Daper(6.01)
nvidia-glx 1.0.8762
nvidia-kernel-common 20051028+1
XawTV 3.94

Default Re: XawTv and overlay mode

When you are using XGL, XGL provides the Xv support and not the nvidia drivers. Try running without XGL and see if that works, it likely will.
