Ok thanks! Yes we are aware of the XV problem. Can you try to use xine and
see if that works? We have a couple of reports where it is only mplayer
having problems. Please also attach the output of xvinfo. It will help us
isolating the problem that seems to be specific to a range of nvidia cards
and not all of them.

Yes the problem is the driver itself. You can keep -7 and use the new
driver while we figure what is wrong.

Thanks! I will let you when we will have something new to test.

<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.

<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
