Thank you for the prompt response; I will try xvidtune.  I didn't know there
was such an animal (as I said, I'm a total Linux newbie), but figured there
had to be a utility for this in there somewhere.

As far as TwinView, I did some googling and I think I've got a working
xorg.conf to try after work today.

One more question:

I've read in the archives that the MCE remote will work, but what about the
IR blaster?  Will this have to be replaced with on from irblaster.info or

Thanks again for your help!
