So, what is the "correct" way of configuring a MythTV box to output to
a 46" 720p widescreen TV?  I'd like to maintain 1:1 pixel mapping, so
running at 800x600 is out of the question.  I'm currently have X
forced to run at 100dpi, but I still see UI artifacts using the
Minimalist-Wide theme (ie. Mythmusic tree graphic doesn't line up with
the text, Watch Recordings list has 2 items hidden behind the
description at the bottom, Various menu item text disappears depending
on what I currently have highlighted).
