How do I make sure that I don't have the enabled?  Just comment out
any twinview lines in xorg.conf?  Kind of weird that it happened on
the transition to fc7, but I will see if I have older xorg.conf files
from before and what the diff is.  Also, I have never knowingly
enabled xinerama or twinview, and only have one monitor.

Any idea that, even using the hack, and a 5xxx series card, I am
getting greyscale?  And will the XvMC-OpenGL work with 5xxx cards?  If
so, I can just wait until those changes make it to the stable releases
of mythtv.
