    Well, don't get too excited, NETB, I'm back on the CM based ROM. :vbtongue:

    It gets a little weirder though at this point.

    (Warning: this is long and convoluted and probably not worth your time :vbwink:)

    So, I decided to Nandroid back to the CM-based ROM. I figured I'd try and get a logcat while the video was playing and see if it revealed something (to the Dev-- I have no idea what that stuff in a logcat means). So I go to play a video... it's no longer lisping. Tried another, it worked fine too. I now began to realize I had been caught in another attempt by my technology to humiliate me in front of an XDA dev. :vbeek: :vbrolleyes:

    Then, I discovered another strange problem. There were a few videos that DroidTV refused to play. he first two I tried were ones that had been downloaded on the previous ROM. Aha, says I. So I Nandroid back to IronRom and try them and they play. So I try a couple I downloaded on the new ROM and they play too. So I go back to the new ROM and discover other files that were downloaded on the old ROM that play fine. In fact, the ones that didn't play were all from BBC: Sherlock and Dr, Who. I tried removing them (also from DroidTV's servers, and then redownloaded fresh copies and they still wouldn't play.

    What to do? I didn't want to go back to Touchmywiz. So I remembered that DroidTV will let you use third party video players. It apparently has it's choices hard wired so it wouldn't offer me my go-to player Act 1, but it did offer VLC, so I slelected that and now all the videos play.

    So, I think I have everything sorted, although I really have no idea what caused any of the problems, why everything worked so smoothly with DroidTV before or how everything got fixed. However, I dirty flashed the new release today (with the Feb security updates) and everything is still fine. :thumbsup:

    If we have to start adding warning labels to posts that are long and convoluted, I should just put one in my signature to save time. :vboops:

    They were, but a new government regulation was just passed requiring warning labels on my posts. :vbwink:
