[mythtv-users] howto prevent console from going to tvout

I was wondering if anyone knows how to prevent the console from being
directed to tvout.  Currently I am using the tvout on the PVR350. 
However when things go bad and I lose my networking, I can't get into
the system to debug it.  I want console to go to the monitor and tvout
to be used for X.  Is this possible or a serial console is the only
solution??  Thanks.

Here is my modules.conf file:

# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
# options ivtv ivtv_debug=1 mpg_buffers=90
options ivtv ivtv_debug=1
options saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=0
options tuner type=2 # NTSC tuner
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 saa7127 tuner
add above ivtv ivtv-fb
