You need to stop removing all previous quotes, because most people will
delete the messages in the thread, and it's hard to follow what you are
asking about, exactly. AGP has no effect on PCI-E, so that's a dead end.
One question, are you using MythBuntu, or Ubuntu in general, for the
frontend? I had no end of playback problems with Ubuntu, I switched to
MythDora and it's been a dream. I run current SVN trunk version of
MythTV, and the latest Nvidia drivers, and it just works. Here is the
video section of xorg.conf. I made no changes after installing MythDora
and the Nvidia driver:
HorizSync 30.0 - 110.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 150.0
Viewport 0 0
Option "Composite" "Enable"
