I am using the .22 mythbuntu theme and looks great on a SD set. It
supports the new fanart in mythvideo and watch recordings. I tried
some of the other new ones like Graphite and they were usable but
often felt cluttered and unappealing because of being squeezed into
SD. MythCenter is still available and looks much like it normally did
with .21. Most of the screen are just the default MythUI screens with
the MythCenter background but I would say overall that is still better
than .21.

I am using Component out to a SD set with 190.42. I also had no
problem with 190.36 or 185. Have you tried backing up your xorg file
and removing it. Then running nvidia-xconfig from scratch?
