SUID issue solved: When I copied the rootfs it changed the permissions, I copied whilst retaining permissions and it now boots into X and mythfrontend as it should.

Although, when I select a recording or live TV I get sound but the video is doubled up vertically. I get two of the the image one on top of the other and the bottom version has strange colours. I have tried setting the MM_VIDEO_DEINTERLACER option to all available settings to no avail.

This could be a xorg.conf issue or a resolution issue. What settings are you using for minimyth.conf?

Also, is it working without you setting MM_X_DRIVER? As far as I can tell from your lspci output, the video should be autodetected.

Now working, I had to tweak the graphics memory available to the video card in BIOS (was 128 but I lowered to 64) as the memory of the fitpc is 256MB. When I run 'free' when mythfrontend is starting it gets very low to 0 and I am unable to expand the memory on these boxes. It does run now but I think lack of memory causes a few glitches such as jumpy sound every now and then. I will play around with the minimyth build system to try to reduce the memory consumption of the kernel etc.

The double image was solved by changing the decoder.

In order to reduce the memory usage be sure that you are using a low memory theme as well as disabling any MythTV plugins that you do not need.
