[mythtv-users] [OT] Why doesn't my desktop size change when I change resolutions?

I'm not sure how to do it, but X allows you to have a virtual desktop
which is bigger than the resolution of your monitor.  That's what you're
experiencing when you drop down to 540p.  Do some searching on how to
disable virtual desktop and you'll be all set.

Sorry I couldn't help more,
