[mythtv-users] Linux newbie strikes again... PVR-150 not outputting to X300...

I've been working on my mythtv install for a bit now, but I've encountered
an issue now that everything is more-or-less configured.  I've got a PVR-150
that appears to be configured properly, based on the fact that I can tune in
channels and view them on the monitor.  I can also view the output from my
ATI X300 video card using the proprietary fglrx driver on my TV without

When I start the myth frontend, I can see my initial menu (i.e. watch tv,
setup, etc.) on the TV and the CRT at the same time.  As soon as I select
"Watch TV", I get a blue screen on my TV and the output shifts solely to my
CRT.  Going back to the previous menu, bringing up the guide, and the like
all result in the picture reappearing on the TV.

I'm really not sure where to begin debugging this, but my modprobe.conf and
a snippet of my xorg.conf are pasted below for review.  If anyone can assist
me in shedding some light on what I've been doing wrong here, I would
greatly appreciate it.
