[mythtv-users] Video card hell. Need help.

No, I haven't tried blacklisting nouveau.  Not sure where I'd do that.
 Besides, it appears (at this point) to be a side issue in that what I
need is to be able to support TV-Out from the nvidia card and I'm not
sure the nouveau driver could support that.

To answer Dan's question, dunno.  It was taken care of automagically
by MythBuntu as part of the install when I started the build with the
8400GS installed.  I just tried reinstalling, via Synaptic, the
(nvidia-current?) video driver in case that would fix something to
make it work with the 6200.  No help.  The 8400GS is deprecated (by
me!) because the driver has a bug and newer (e.g. 8400GS) cards drive
the system to 99% CPU load and I get jerky video playback and system

I have concluded you can't get there from here and it's time to play
frisbee with the ASUS M4A785-M mobo.  For S-video use it is useless.

Thanks for the help anyways.
