went back to 8.9 and all is fine. Has anybody else seen anything strange with spdif on 8.10?
One thing they seemed to have fixed was the mythfrontend screen corruption (a.k.a. checkerboard of death) problem that we've had since 8.6. Mythfrontend worked fine in full screen with no corruption in 8.10. I had to do the windowed hack in 8.9.
