[mythtv-users] X: `Ctrl Alt +' to change "screens"?

Very cool!

That almost solves my problem.  The only thing which does not seem to
work, is setting the physical screen dimensions.  Documentation for the
xrandr command is pretty sparse, but one of the things "xrandr -help"
returns is:

-s <size>/<width>x<height> or --size <size>/<width>x<height>

I was hoping that they meant physical width and height.  It is possible
they do, but if so MythTV does not pay attention to the change.

Assuming you have XFree86 4.3 or above, investigate the 'xrandr'
