Default XvMC is about to make me scream.

I'm running Linux 2.6 and have a GeForce 6800, and I'm trying to get XvMC output working in MPlayer. The command

Code:
XVMC_DEBUG=1 mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc dvd://
produces this message:

Code:
VO: [xvmc] 720x480 => 854x480 MPEG1/2 Motion Compensation and IDCT  [fs]
vo_xvmc: Port 270 grabed
vo_xvmc: Found matching surface with id=54434449 on 270 port at 0 adapter
NV-XVMC (ERROR): this library supports the following chips only:
NV-XVMC (ERROR):    NV17, 18, 25, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 36, 40, 41, 43 and 44
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
My question is: How do I find out which chip I have? And if my chip turns out to be one of those not listed above, is there any hope of getting XvMC working with it?

I'm pretty sure the nv42 is the 6800 chip. 6600/6200/6600gt are all nv43. Not sure if there's any hope getting xvmc working with your card at the moment, but I can confirm it works with nv43's.

This is disappointing news, but thanks all the same.
