[mythtv-users] X PVR-350 at boot time...

I have now been able to finally get X, and the mythFrontend up on my TV :) thanx to tips by many of you there :)

however if I use the XF86Config file for my TV on boot..it will fail saying that my /dev/fb0 does not exist.

here is what I currently have to do from boot to get the TV-out working (X, and frontend):

boot up with XF86Config for my monitor.

once logged in I must run:
# /sbin/rmmod saa7127
# /sbin/insmod saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=0

at this point if now switch to my XF86Config for the TV, I can get into X, and MythFrontEnd..on the TV of course..

which tells me...the module is not loading normally or at the right time during the boot process...

I suspect something with my modules conf...included below...
should I re-arrange the order???
