LiveTV gets horizontally shifted after EPG

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mythtv

Using Mythbuntu 9.10 amd64.

I had to modify Mythfrontend GUI resolution and horizontal offset, and also LiveTV overscan using MythTV internal controls for such task. Then whenever I'm watching LiveTV and get into EPG, returning to LiveTV gives an horizontally shifted video, leaving a grey vertical bar on the left side. Iterating the process gives a further displaced video and thus a wider bar.

To reset the displacement I have to exit and re-enter LiveTV.

Hi Antonio, in order for us to send this report upstream i'd like to ask for a few things:

1) Can you take a picture of this phenomenon so we can get a better idea of what's happening?
2) What graphics driver are you using?
3) Can you confirm the exact build you are using? Upstream generally likes tickets to have the latest -fixes checkout. The Mythbuntu team has builds of newer versions of MythTV available on a PPA if you are interested in upgrading. Please follow the directions at
to enable them.

Hi Mario,

1) See attached file.

2) intel driver (GMA X4500 integrated chip).

3) Updated to autobuilds and still the same. To trigger the phenomenon you must:

    a) Setup --> Appearance --> move to the GUI page and give GUI horizontal offset a positive, non-zero value (mine is 62).
    b) Go to LiveTV. The image appears normal.
    c) Enter EPG and change channel from there.
    d) LiveTV appears --wrongly-- shifted to the right side of the screen.
    e) To reset the shifting you must quit LiveTV and re-enter.

To avoid the phenomenon you must set GUI horizontal offset to zero.
