This is virtually identical, hardware-wise to my configuration. Hope
you don't mind if I ask a few questions:
What distro are you using? Also, is it 64-bit or 32-bit?
Did you compile your MythTV from source?
I'm assuming you're not using XvMC? Or possibly you are? Which
version of the nVidia driver are you using?
