I managed to Alt-Tap right after selecting watch recorded video.  Below is what was on the mythfrontend terminal window, had to type it from another computer, as the MythTv one is frozen!
Disable DMPS
Opening audio device '/dev/dsp'.
Opening oss audio device '/dev/dsp'.
Using XV on port 61
Changing from None to WatchingPreRecorded
Realtime priority would require SUID as root.
Hopefully this is something simple that I've overlooked, since I'm pretty new to linux, I wouldn't doubt it!

When I attempt to watch live tv via MythTv, keyboard
locks up, system locks up, I get about 2 seconds of
sound then either nothing or sound repeating. No
video, black screen. 

No problems when i test the capture with:
cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test_capture.mpg
mplayer -vo xv /tmp/test_capture.mpg

I finally figured out how to log the backend so I
could observe what it did when it crashed, but that
appears to be of little use, see below. 

Setup: FedoraCore 3, latest MythTv version. PVR250,
nVidia generic card outputting to a standard monitor,
no tvout with this box. Frontend and backend are on
the same system (plan to add second frontend. . . )

Any ideas?
