That seems to help.  Now if I can just get the picture better...

Whatever the default is.  I think 800x600.  I've fiddled with nvtv and 
some modes the picture looks better than others.  However none of the 
predefined modes are good for me.  I believe that if I understood how to 
tweak the modeline setting in xorg.conf, I could get a good picture.  
Right now, the picture looks "washed out" and the X window doesn't fill 
the screen.  On the TV, there's a good 2 inches on the right and left.  
A little more on the right because the picture is also off center.  The 
bottom is cut off slightly and there's a good inch or so at the top.

Any suggestions as to a guide to understanding modelines?  Or am I way 
off base.
