I could never get 7676 to work. But I just looked at the log and it is
definitely crashing in the nVidia GLX libraries. Unless they will share
the code for those with me without an NDA they will have to fix it :)

I looked at the nVidia forum and it looks like a lot of people are
screaming at them over breaking MythTV playback with their latest
drivers. I'm leaning toward getting one of those older ATI cards
with open source drivers the next time around...
