I installed the latest binary Nvidia drivers and have solved the xv support
issue. Thanks for pointing me in that direction. I always thought that I had
the correct drivers since Mandrake detected a Riva TNT2 - i guess i didn't.
I was able to watch TV for a minute until it froze when I tried to change
channels. It looks like another sound issue, although I thought I had alsa all
shored up and working. I cnt-c out of myth and noticed some errors again about
DSP and setting volume to 32### ...whatever.
Got another question about resizing the size of the TV viewing screen. When the
live TV briefly worked, it covered my whole screen. How can this be made
smaller when mythtv starts?
