I recently whiped and decided to start over, this time comfiguring things 
correctly, or so i hoped.  I installed the latest Nividia drivers, 6106, and 
proceded with the instilation. now whenever i go to live tv all i see is a 
blank screen and it locks mythfrontend and i have to <ctl><alt><backspace> to 
regain control.  I can record and see a video in the preview area, but it 
locks when i try to watch it.  In my last install it ran, slowly, with 
standard 'nv' drivers. I can see /dev/video0 so i know the card is 
recognised.  bttv is set to card 72.
