Sorry if I didn't express myself clear enough. My TV card is working when 
using -xvport 86. I was just mentioning this as a hint (as it might work as 
well for Mark). And AFAIK it's not XVideo that was dropped but DGA.

The latest version working for me is nvidia-driver-1.0.7676_1 (which I'm using 
at the moment). IIRC with newer version only grabdisplay works, which is not 
usable for full screen viewing.
