I then installed the latest version of Nvidia's linux driver for ( NV 7920 GS ) I think v169.09 and that corrected the OpenGL crash however myth frontend is only allowing me to watch just one show at a time and requires restart.

This was discussed here on the -users list a little while ago.  
Unfortunately, I didn't pay a lot of attention (as it doesn't affect my 
configuration) and I don't even remember good search words, so this 
message really just serves as motivation to continue your search or 
encouragement that someone will probably recognize the subject and give 
you a link/more info.  I'm thinking, though, that it was found to be a 
driver bug.
