actually I do have the right driver installed. Below is the snipped of
Identifier "** NVIDIA (generic) [nv]"
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPONENT"
Option "TVStandard" "HD720p"
I finally got a S-Video cable that I am going to try out tonight. I
just do not know if s-video can do 1384x734.
