Bit regression with 260.
Luckily I found that my GT430 works with the latest 256 drivers
Just as another data point (and not to take anything away from jyavenard's opinion since I appreciate all of his hard work on MythTV), I haven't experienced any visual artifacts or crashes that I could attribute to the drivers. My three systems are all C79-based (GeForce 9300/9400/ION) and I have pretty much tried every beta version that has been posted here since 190.25. I have only had to back out once or twice in all that time.
