Hi, all finally forked out and got the box and built it and installed
MythTV and its workking great. The only problem I have is that I am
using blackbox as my window manager which isnt the problem. The problem
is after so many minutes the screen will go black, its like 10 mins or
something. I am only running X with blackbox no screensaver software or
anything. So i figured it had to be a BIOS option so I went into the
BIOS and looked at the Power Management setup and saw that

Video Off Option = Suspend->Off

I thought that maybe that was the problem so I switch that option to

Video Off Option = Always On

which is the only other option. I then tested it and had the same problem
the screen went black after so many mins. If I move the mouse or the
keyboard it brings back the display. Is this an X thing or a BIOS thing
or what please help it is highly annoying when watching TV and it
just goes black. Thanks!!! Oh Ya, I am running red hat 8.0 with the X
that it came with!!!
