   Yes, I've been searching for the answer to this since early
yesterday. I've been to Rage3D multiple times. I've found some great
online instructions via Google that have helped a lot. I have MythTV
running to the monitor, and I can see fluxbox/MythTV on the TV except
the scanrate is messed up and it's all scrunched down and flipping
around. I'm sure the answers are somewhere in the mythtv-users
archives. After messing with this for more than 24 hours and not
finding the final key (basically I think the right scan rate for
S-Video going into a TV) I had hoped for just a real pointer.

   What I don't understand is why, if you didn't want to give a real
answer why you'd bother to write anything at all. I guess some people
are that way. Sorry to bother you.
