Oddly enough I never had a black screen for several years until I
rebuilt my box one day (yea, I know... if it works don't fix it).
Anyway, the binary nvidia drivers had NEVER given me any trouble, but
I could not get myth to display and video except a black screen and
sound.  I ended up rebuilding again, and somehow magically it fixed
the problem.  I know that's not very helpful, but I just wanted to let
you know how I was able to fix the problem, allbeit the hard way.
