Sounds like an Xv problem (restarting X resets Xv).  Are you using xine 
with the -vo xv driver?  If so, check out the thread 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/72823 , which 
references the thread http://mysettopbox.tv/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1597 .

Khan, this may be your problem, too, if using Xv.  If you're using a 
PVR-350 with the 350's TV out, it's not the problem, though (since the 
350's TV out does not support Xv).
