Thank you all in advance, 
I'm rather new to linux and this is has been great list to pick things up ...

I'm hitting a hardlock when trying to watch live tv or any recording
through the frontend
I get fraction of a second of sound and possibly a frame of video  and
then the lock,
... keyboard lock, monitor black, requires reboot

this is a new build following Jarrod's guide, I can watch dvd's,
capture test video with both 250's and watch in Mplayer or Xine..
(outside of the frontend)

this is what the frontend gives me before the lock  

disable DPMS
connecting to the backend server (try 1 of 5)
using protocol version 14
error loading image file /usr/share/mythtv/themes/default/xxxxxxxx.nuv.png
using protocol version 14
opening audio device '/dev/dsp'
opening OSS audio device '/dev/dsp'
using xv port 61
using realtime priority
changing from NONE to WatchingRecording

kernel 2.6.10-1.670FC3smp
mythtv 17
KDE 3.3.1-2.6FC3
nvidia 6629

in building my new box I canobalized my working myth 16, for the video
card and the 2nd pvr250, I have to get this up soon for the wife  ;)
