[mythtv-users] No Display

I am in full crisis mode!
I just bought a new television and spent about 2 hours mounting it to the wall. It is an LG 37inch LED LCD TV with 1080p and 120 Hz refresh capable.
I finally hooked it up to my mythtv box (which is running 0.24 in a mythbuntu package). I got a message from the TV saying "No Signal". I rebooted mythtv and rechecked the connections. I saw the splash screen displayed, and then the "No Signal" message again.
I opened the mythtv box in VNC just to confirm it was on. It was. I tried "Play music" and lo and behold, I had sound and picture. It worked like normal. But when I exited back to the mythtv menu, I got the "No Signal" message.
VLC (which is what I am using to watch videos) gives me a signal which I lose when I exit VLC. I can watch live TV and recorded programs with the internal player, but I cannot see the desktop or the mythtv.
Things I have tried:
Changing the resolution.
Changing the configuration in the NVIDIA panel (although I'm not sure I know EXACTLY what I was doing in there).
Changing my theme.
Opening Mythtfrontend while a VLC window is playing (this is the closest to success I have come... I can see the desktop and enter mythtv, but once that VLC window closes, I get the "No Signal"message.
Thank you for taking a look at this and for any advice.
