So everything was working pretty good -
I only had 1 out 4 DVB tuners working and couldnt get my listings to show but everything else was good:
1080p output - check
DVD ripping - check
Music playing - check
VNC working - check
Samba shares setup - check...
So I spent a day copying my data back into place confident that the tuner problems would soon get sorted out and I'd be back to a fully functional mythbox.... Today the wife got a stack of DVDs form the rental place with the expectation of watching them over the coming week.... so I started my ripping....
I explored the tuners a bit futher and noticed a card was lose - so I pushed it firmly into place and the box seized...
on reboot I get a nasty message:
"Your screen and graphics card could not be detected correctly. To use higher resolutions, visual effects or multiple screens you have to configure the display yourself" - and I'm forced to run in 640x480 resolution (real ugly on a 46" screen)
I've tried reinstalling the latest NVIDIA drivers and the install runs ok - but still when I restart X I cnat get any resolution beyond 640x480. The Nvdia driver utility detects my GeeForce6600 card (and the Sony Screen attached to it which it recognises as 1080p)
So what have I done - and how can I undo it? Any thoughts? or do I have to abandon the work done in the last week and start from scratch again with a fresh install?
Also noticed on reboot I get a strange set of messages that are tough to read becuase of the overscan I get on the 720p output whilst booting up so I miss2 characters at teh start of each line:
What does that mean? Have a fried a bit of disk? or is something just out of whack that a magical "rebuild/refresh" command of some description would fix up?
ading, please wait
