Actually, the mythtv packages do not depend on nvidia-glx-185 but on
The problem is that you can't use version 180 of the vdpau library
with the 185 drivers, it gives an error during playback. libvdpau must
match the version of the drivers.
So if you are to install libvdpau-185, it will replace libvdpau-180
which is used by your current mythtv packages.
There are no differences with the mythtv packages found in testing
compare to those in release, except that they are link to libvdpau-185
So it makes little sense to me while you would want 185.xx drivers
which are in pre-release state, but not get the mythtv compiled
