[mythtv-users] Gentoo USE flags - no overlay on OSD?

Hi everyone,

I have a feeling there's something in my USE flags which is preventing me 
from getting the OSD to work correctly with myth.  I'm using a Gentoo 
frontend with Myth 18.1 and an nvidia 5200 card.  When I connect from other 
frontends I can get the overlayed display (the blue pane that pops up to let 
you know how far you've skipped forward, etc).  With this one frontend I 
don't get anything though - just the TV picture.

My use flags, largely borrowed from this site ( 
http://home.comcast.net/~alf_park/mythtv.html ), are as follows:

x86 mmx sse 3dnow alsa avi crypt dvd flac gif imlib jpeg lirc mad mpeg mysql 
oggvorbis opengl png quicktime sdl tiff truetype X xmms xv zlib nvidia -arts 
transcode xinerama -nls net -ldap xvid v412 theora qt kde acpi

Does anything stick out as something that would prevent my OSD from working 
correctly?  One thing I do notice is that on my "bad" frontend, myth's 
messages come out preceeded with "mpegvideo_xvmc" and on my "good" frontend 
the messages come out preceeded with "mpeg2video".  I'm not sure if this is 
relevant, but from my searches on this mailer I kept bumping into the term 
"xvmc" and have some suspicion that it's related (even though I don't know 
what it is).

Many thanks,
