[mythtv-users] X problems with no monitor

My system is FC1, a single PVR250, Jarod's guide followed...

I'm running myth on a system that uses an external scan converter that splits 
to a TV and monitor.  When I finally moved the whole thing out of 
the 'basement' for general family consumption I found that 'X' didn't come 
up.  Well, it may have come up with a bad configuration.  There was a squished 
line about 1" high at the top. I no longer had a monitor attached.  

I ran redhat-config-xfree86 and got errors.  I next added a monitor again.  I 
rebooted and go the same problem.  I attempted to run the X configurator again 
and still got errors.

I haven't had time but I'm sure I can handle my immediate X problems.  My real 
question is if anyone else is running an external scan converter only and what 
do you do about a monitorless X setup?
