Card : Onboard NVidia GForce 6100 505
Driver : 96.43.05 and 169.12
Os : Mythbuntu 7.10
Myth : latest myhtbuntu weekly's

I cannot get XvMC to work with the above mythtv (or xine). I have a entry 
in /etc/X11/XvMCConfig:

but when ever I start mythfrontend or xine I get the following:

Trying XvMC port 275

NV-XVMC (ERROR): this XvMC library does not support this chip2008-03-14

Does XvMC even work with a 6100? any suggestions?

thanks - Lindsay
