I think I have but I'll give it another try...I'm thinking it might have
something to do with the XFree86 config file cuz I haven't changed
anything in there...

Did you modprobe the ivtv-fb driver?  (I also have "alias
ivtv-fb" in my modules.conf")  At one point, I thought I'd messed up and
killed the OSD somehow, then I remembered I hadn't put that driver
back in after a reboot.
