Thanks for that,
Just 2 probs:
1) How did you get both X sessions (PVR and VGA) to run at the same
time? I found while using your mehod, the VGA part would shut down, and
the image would come up on the TV, then when I exit MythTV, the monitor
would come back on exactly where I was before?
2) How do you get the PVR to run without keyboard/mouse as when I ran X
for the PVR, it wouldn't start without the keyboard and mouse?
Thanks very much for your help
Cheers - Piers
