 It looks like the problem was the memory allocation in the your BIOS. The
 drivers require 4MB per 1080i surface, plus they require memory for other
 things. The nVidia drivers only support a maximum of eight surfaces so
 you're not going to get completely smooth video with a 6150 at HDTV
 resolutions. The 5xxx cards support chromakey OSD and so can have smoother
 video. OpenGL OSD is available on all nVidia cards, but AFAIK none of the
 6xxx cards is fast enough to composite an OpenGL OSD over the XvMC
 Surface. Sorry.
