Ok, the transfer of the disk seemed to go smoothly.  I didn't quite
follow the directions on changing the hostname, instead I did it mysql
updating hostname in a couple tables ( capturecard, jumppoints,
recorded, settings I think that's it).  Everything SEEMS to be going
good, with one problem: Output is screwy.  It seems every other
horizontal line is a green line.

I had this problem before, and if I remember right it just kinda
magically went away.  Now it's back on the new hardware, and I don't
know what to do to fix it!  I installed nvidia's latest drivers.  I'm
running mythbackend version: 0.16.20040906-1
