[mythtv-users] XvMC does not work on 720p!?

Hi, I recently tried both an nvidia GeForce FX 5700LE and a Geforce 6200
and have been pretty much unable to get XvMC working at all.
I'm using OpenSuse 10.3 i586 with mythtv 0.21-9 from Packman and I'm
using the 173.14.05 NVidia drivers from NVidia's site (I have also tried
the 169 ones from the opensuse nvidia repository with the same results).
I have a projector that supports native 720p and it displays perfectly
using the DVI out on either card. However, I have not been able to get
XvMC working with either card except for once (and it hasn't worked since).
The one time it did work, I was using the 5700LE and I had the output
(1024x768) going to an LCD panel using the VGA out. It worked using
mplayer for a couple tries. Then once I got it working, I thought it
was all good, switched back to the projector in 720p, and have not been
able to get it working again since.
I have the following in the Device section of the xorg.conf:
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "UseEvents" "true"
Option "XvmcUsesTextures" "false"
and I have libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1 in /etc/X11/XvMCConfig
So, I'm really stuck on this whole thing and don't know what to do.
Apparently, XvMC *can* work. I'm wondering if it will work with 720p
native or if I have to use a "standard" computer resolution and if
there's anything else I am missing to get this working.
