I have built a new MythTV server on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Desktop, using the Ubuntu (V32) MythTV packages. It is working (backend and local frontend). The server has an Nvidea graphics card, and Nvidea drivers.
I also have a MinPC with an Intel® Pentium® Silver N6005 CPU, that I wish to use as a MythTV client.

It's got on-board Intel UHD Graphics:
It's also running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS desktop, with the same packages as the server.
Code: Select all

In the MinPC client frontend "Settings -> Video -> Playback", I was hoping that "VAAPI normal" or perhaps "OpenGL High" might work, but alas none of the choices in the menu work with the i915 that comes with Ubuntu. No video when I click on "Watch TV". There's an error message indicating that the "Video Playback" setting won't work.
However I can see the programme guide. So the connection to the server is working (at least in some fashion).
I'm not sure whether I have mis-configured the frontend, or I have struck an unsupported piece of kit.
Does anyone know if this is the usual situation for the i915 driver with JasperLake UHD Graphics? Is there any way forward with this hardware?
