OK, thanks for that, Jarod.

I had to creatively persuade yum that a couple of mirrors of 
rpmfusion.org did not exist - they were the source of the rc2 version of 
0.24 I ended up with.  I'm guessing the .edu's on the mirror list don't 
have anyone around during the long holiday weekend to notice things 
aren't quite up-to-date. I'm sure they'll be back up-to-speed with 
things next week.

Anyway, I now have mythtv 0.24-2.fc14 (r27317), and the 260.19.21 
version of the nvidia driver installed, and after rebooting for good 
measure -

- it's still using USleep for video timing. :-(

Any other information I could provide to help troubleshoot?
