Yup, the tput results you posted show the expected resolution, so this
has a 1024x768 frame buffer.

Looks like 800x600 with frame buffer...

Don't know why you get no video, since it looks like the frame buffer
is OK. The error would not be an audio error here - Theora is the
video, Vorbis is audio, 'ogg' is the 'container'. It seems strange that
video will not play, since you appear to have an 800x600x16 frame

Which means directfb is OK - good.

Yes, thanks Marsha. I can't see why the 1024x768 works for video but the
800x600 doesn't... 'tis a mystery to me!
