Hi there,

i've tried to play some movies using cron (i sent a msg some days
ago...) but i continue having the same problem: mplayer doesn't free the
terminal (i'm using fbdev), so when movie finish, the last frame is
showed until mplayer lauchs again.
Too, i need to display a image when mplayer isn't working.
Right, i don't want to get all job made, I *only* need to know where
could be the problem or how to clear the screen when mplayer finish.

I launch mplayer using crontab with a script like this:

setterm -clear
mplayer -vo fbdev -fs -slave /path/movie
setterm -clear
fbi /path/logo.jpg
