[mythtv] G400 and TV Out (again)

I'm curious... are you guys talking about the Millenium G400 or the Marvel
G400-TV?  I'm assuming the  Millenium?  I have a Marvel G400-TV and it seems
to have similar problems.

I've gotten X working dual head (head 1: 1024x768 w/ Gnome Desktop, head 2:
640x480 attached to 0:.1).  I can play movies using mplayer using :0.1, but
I get no scaling support or hardware accelaration.

At this poing I've pretty much given up on the Marvel to do anything useful
for me (installed a WinTV and bought a VGA->NTSC convertor).  Although, I
would be willing to switch the accel/scaling support to head2 if that is
possible.  I haven't made any attempts to use the framebuffer directly for
video (although I understand *that* is well supported), because if I can't
display myth to the 2nd head, it's not very useful for me.

However, if you can have X attach the 2nd head to the framebuffer and get
all the accel/scaling support, that would be great.  Keep us all informed.
