generated for the old drawable. If the port is grabbed by another client, this request is
ignored, and an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvBusy is generated for the drawable. If
the port is not receiving a valid video signal or if the video signal is interrupted while
video is active a VideoNotify event with detail XvHardError is generated for the drawable.
