Thanks again, this command give no return at all.

I now realise the vdeo options I listed are not for the device but for
the plugins, the device options are greyed out , but reads

Can I assume that I don't have any xv ports and this is the problem.
Is the obvious starting point to load the Matrox drivers, which I
haven't done as except for the Skype issue, everything seems to be
working fine.
