I've got a Toshiba 57", model 57H81, that I'm trying to get Component Video 
to work with.  I have the VGA->Component Adaptor to facilitate this.  I've 
been going the route that Jarod outlined with PowerStrip.  I found 
resolution that would work on the TV via Component, copied it into my 
XF86Config and restarted GNome.  Nothing.  It doesn't show up.  The only 
time I ever see anything is when I'm not in a window environment like 
Gnome.. as soon as it starts up Gnome I see nothing.

Please Help.  Here is the related sections of my XF86Config.
