Urgh!!! Everything worked so fine for so long, and then I "had" to do
the upgrade...

My setup is Ubuntu Edgy, ivtv, nvidia.

As far as I can tell modules relevant for this problem that got upgraded are
nvidia-glx 1:1.0.9631+

The symptom is I watch the show and then exit or let it finish go back
to the menu and try to start another show and then nothing, just black
screen. It happens all the time even with videos which don't use
internal player but mplayer. The fe log shows:

I'm able to switch to terminal and kill the fe process, the whole
system is not affected, just mythtv.

Any ideas?
