OK, thanks, I will try.

OK, that's no problem, there is nothing special in my database. This is a
dedicated system for Myth, I would have no problem to completely reinstall
Mythbuntu if necessary.

My xorg.conf has the same setting, aticonfig adds this when you configure
for Xv using the --ovt switch.
