thanks for the help!  I added the xset and nvtv lines to my .xsession and 
.xinitrc files.  I didn't have enough time to test if DPMS was turned off 
(I'll check tonight).  But if I try to run the nvtv line as non-root I get an 
error about nvidia devices not found or me not being root.  I chowned 
/dev/nvidia* to a group that my mythtv user is a member of, but that didn't 
help.  And I don't want to run myth as root.

Any suggestions?
