Thanks for your reply. My compile included randr but since my X was started
with xinerama it seems randr was disabled - thus disabling randr. I turned
off xinerama and all is well.. sorta.

The setting is:

Separate video modes for GUI and TV playback
Switch X Window video modes for TV. Requires "xrandr" support.

But it's only available if you compiled Myth with Xrandr support. If you 
don't have the option, your Myth was compiled without it.
