Been running 0.22+fixes on Mythbuntu 9.10 on my Revo just great for months.

Just upgraded to 10.04 + 0.23 and VDPAU has died :-(

I notice I am now running nvidia driver 195.36.15 whereas before I was on 
190 something. I have checked X's log and there are no errors, and the 
driver seems to be being loaded fine. Xorg.conf looks fine too.

Any ideas anyone? I'm a bit stuck on what to try next and the missus aint 
happy! ;-)

Many thanks,

ps. I don't seem to have a 0.23+fixes in the mythbuntu auto builds, only 
0.23. Is this normal?
