How do I check if my video card has Xv extension?
I am using an Asus Pundit with built-in video support.
 It uses the SiS650 chip and the driver is "sis".

I installed on a Mandrake v10 (kernel 2.6.3) system
using Thac's RPM for the latest MythTV 0.16.  I also
tried compiling MythTV from source and that did not
make a difference.  I'll check the archives for "This
is odd..." to see if this can help.
