Nvidia card here as well... just reverted to the nv driver since I
don't use 3D much. Problem: the nv driver doesn't just remove 3D
support... it also fails to let me watch TV as well !
I use xdtv to watch TV, and from my little understanding, it complains
that some feature is missing in the video support.

I could do without 3D for now, but no TV is not possible (I don't have
nor want a standalone TV receiver)

So I am back to the nvidia driver for now.
