Are you runing dual headed X? Or are you runing Myth on the computer
monitor, and sending the TV shows to the TV monitor? I;m trying to decide
what to do about this myself, and I really am not happy with teh way Myth
looks on my TV, but the recordings look good on it, and it's larger than
any computer monitor I can afford.

I'm looking to hear what other people have done about this.
