We had only one real change of the mythtv packages. Lately Pascal has added 
unicable support backported from mythtv master. This was a bad idea, because 
it updates the database, which doesn't work well.

I think that isn't your actual problem. At  the moment there seems to be a 
mess with the underlying multimedia libraries. I think that's more likley the 
cause for what you observe. If that's the case you problem my be solved when 
those libs are updated.

Meanwhile I am preparing an update with the latest fixes from the mythtv 
repository and try to solve the issue with the database, too
