Thanks for your reply,

I do get OSD all the time, just the actual video goes.  I honestly 
haven't messed much with the xv video drivers, but will try and goof 
with them some and report back, but my main goal was to get it going 
with DFB but that might not be possible, I don't know!  When doing DFB I 
get no video period I only get the VDR OSD, and when I first start it I 
get audio on the channel it starts on, just no video.  But if I change 
channels all I get is OSD, I lose audio.  I hope I am explaining this 
good enough for ya! :)  I will see what I can do about the X drivers and 
let you know the results.

Thanks again for the help.
