[mythtv] Quality of TV out and vga to tv converters?

I just switched from an ATI card using an external convertor since the video
out did not work to a geforce 2 with video out. With very little tweaking
this is a significant improvement.

Chris - would you be willing to send some of your settings to use as a
starting point in my own tweaking?

Thanks
Rob
