Thanks for the quick reply!

How do I rearrange my displays?  Is it as simple as changing

    Option      "MonitorLayout" "CRT,TV"
    Option      "ForceMonitors" "CRT,TV"


    Option      "MonitorLayout" "TV,CRT"
    Option      "ForceMonitors" "TV,CRT"

I apologize in advance for any dumb questions.  Thanks for the help.
