Hi all, 

My system is running Fedora Core 3 2.6.11-rc4 kernel. And I have a nvidia 
6600 GT AGP card sitting on a gigabyte mother board. 

I also do see this error using -v playback: 

2005-02-27 22:38:11.761 nVidiaVideoSync: VBlank ioctl did not work, 
unimplemented in this driver?
2005-02-27 22:38:11.761 DRMVideoSync: Could not open device /dev/dri/card0, 
No such file or directory 

in my logs. How should I fix this? This only happens when I am not using 
twinview configuration in xorg.cong. If I use single head which is hdtv and 
the CRT monitor is disconnected, I will only see a blank screen when playing 
a recorded program or livetv. What could be the issue? What am I missing?
