I have pretty much the same setup as you (PRO-510D w/VGA).  Sadly, I'm
away from home right now and I don't know how to read my setup via SSH
(since it's on the X screens used to config myth).  I can send a
message to you when I'm back in front of my system next Saturday.

It would be REALLY NICE if the person maintaining the setup screens
would accomodate the fact that all TVs overscan, making the setup next
to impossible when viewing on a TV.  (Someday I will figure out how to
create setup screens on my own and revamp them all, but I know nothing
about Qt so this will take awhile.)
