[mythtv-users] ATI Radeon 9600 / MythTV Issue

I have a 9600 in my Myth box. I was running Ubuntu Dapper and Myth .19, and
upgraded to .20. After a few weeks of running .20, things started falling
apart (lirc stopped responding, and then there was a unrecoverable -- within
my scope of knowledge -- mysql problem).
I decided to load Edgy and Myth .20 from the repos. The install went fairly
smooth, but I canNOT seem to get video to display correctly on my TV. I
have an older CRT television. When I use my VERY old LCD for setup, I can
get it to work perfectly, but when I unplug and reboot (as I used to before
reinstalling) I can't get video to display correctly. The desktop looks
fine, but when I play video with Xv enabled (either through Myth or Totem)
it looks as if the aspect ratio has doubled in length and I only get to see
the top half stretched to fill the screen. When I turn Xv off, I get video
fine through Totem, but with the internal Myth player the aspect ratio is
adjusted to fit into 4:3 and the normal adjustment doesn't do anything to
Any ideas or help? Yes, I know, I should trash the old ATI card and get an
Nvidia, but I'm trying to save some cash. Especially when everything worked
"fine" before I reinstalled.
