I do just that on my workstation.

Actually, you got the spelling right. (most don't when guessing, so 
congrats. ;-)

Now, Myth doesn't give a rip what the display device is that you have 
connected to your box. My main box is hooked to an HDTV through the VGA port, 
which to Myth, is no different than your setup (save the resolution 
differences). What exactly isn't working? If you simply set up xorg.conf for 
a single CRT, Myth should just work.
