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
