Hi Brad,

Thanks for the reply. I've got the nvidia driver installed from 
freshrpms, and configured (I think properly) - I've got numerous boxes 
both at home and work that have the nvidia driver running on them - for 
the opengl. Is there any special settings for the nvidia driver when 
running mythtv?

I should also mention that if I'm displaying only on the TV at 800x600, 
I don't see the next, back or cancel buttons. They seem to get dropped 
off the bottom of the screen.
