Well that pretty much narrows it down to an X-Windows problem.  The
mythbackend doesn't need X so wouldn't be bothered if it didn't start,
but the rest of the machine must have come up OK.

I'd concentrate on:

nvidia drivers (did you update the kernel but not the nvidia-kmdl package?)

xorg.conf (does it have proper configuration for TV-Out)

nvidia-settings ( not sure what might be in there but perhaps you can
disable/enable the TV Out)

Possible motherboard BIOS settings (does your motherboard perhaps have
it's own TV Out socket that needs to be disabled)
