  MX440 sounds like a GeForce card ... next step, is to have two screens on 
your X display.  Where display :0.0 is your VGA or flat panel, and 
display :0.1 is your TV.  Of course, that's only useful if you have your 
computer serve as both the multimedia device and your personal computer.  But 
it's nice to be able to show TV/DVD on one screen and browse as normal on the 
other at the same time.
