Okay, please be easy on me; I am new at this.

I had some hardware laying around, so I decided to give MythTV a

I decided that before I install MythTV, I should make sure the
hardware is working.

I have a WinTV-Go card, and an ATI Rage Pro LT based video card
with TV-Out.  I have installed Mandrake 9.0.  Xawtv works fine on
my monitor, but the picture on my tv is scrambled.  Everything is
scrambled on the tv, not just the tv programming.

I am fairly new to linux, but I am a technical kind of guy, and I
decided this is a good opportunity to learn.

As I understand it, there is a config file that I can edit to tell
X the video modes I want to use.  I have gathered that I can add a
modeline command to this config file that may hold some promise
for fixing my tv-out.

Am I right about this?  Do any of you happen to be using an old
ATI Rage Pro LT card for Myth, and know a command that will work?
