Simple patch to fix the bug. 1-liner
media-tv/me tv incorrectly calls VLC in its me-tv-18.104.22.168/client/vlc_engine.diff causing a failure to open the output source.
Refer to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/me-tv/+bug/1179606
I have implemented and tested the patch, confirmed the fix, and attached the patch below.
