Update to question:

I installed the latest NVIDIA drivers from NVIDIA's website dated 
12/5/05 and same problem.  Get video on whatever I have set for the 
channel in setup.conf but as soon as I change to another channel I lose 
video.  This is after disabling DFB in my kernel and installing the 
NVIDIA drivers and running Softdevice with the -vo xv: command. 

Thanks
