 Check /etc/X11/xorg.conf and see if you are using the nvidia driver not nv.
You need also to select the right video card for your media director in the webadmin.
Also check if X freezes during a non pluto kde session

 Hope this help.

The driver for xorg is nvidia.
for the MD the config in web admin is
Video Card : Geforce or TNT2
Hardware acceleration : opengl

When I don't launch the Media Director (then only core and KDE is running) then everything is ok. no crash.

This is since I install the new video card.??

 Try using xv as hardware acceleration and try starting mythtvbackend from kde then well be able to isolate the issue and know what causes slowliness or crashes.

 I have Geforce FX5200 and it works great with UI 1/2/3.

 I you need my xorg.conf just tell.

 Regards,

Rafik

I have put the hardware acc to xv but still hang of the pc only when media Director is on. not when core is alone launch.
What do you mean by launch mythtvblackend from KDE?

in kde open a terminal window and type sudo mythtvbackend so you will use mythtv outside of pluto.

 If the issue remain something wrong with pluto / wrapper else in mythtv with this card those drivers or else.

Hmmm... it might be that the 7300 has an IRQ problem with networking if it only happens when you power up a pxe booted MD. Just a thought...

What do you mean? that the VGA card is in conflit with network card for the irq? How is the irq managed under linux? Maybe I must change this in BIOS?

I think totallymaxed was under the impression that you meant a diskless MD (and so was I) we usually refer to a core+MD as a hybrid.

I wish I could give you some tips, but I have no idea either.  Maybe it's a case of bad memory, but I'm guessing as well.  You could try letting the memtest (included with kubuntu) run overnight.  It can be started from the boot menu (press escape when GRUB tells you to during the boot).
