Sorry, looking at it, I think the above option is something you 
shouldn't do with 0.19 and ChromaKeyOSD having just read the wiki 
myself. I was mentioning it as a fix for non-Quadro cards with the 
flickering greyscale OSD in 0.18, I probably should have been more 
specific. I haven't upgraded to 0.19 yet, due to the Nova-T issue - so 
I've never tried it with the ChromaKeyOSD stuff. If it prevents other 
flavours of mythtv+Nvidia working - I guess it's just one of those 
random things.....
