Well, not automatically, at any rate.  It does do a much better job of 
letting you try manual changes than linux equivalents like xvidtune.  
However, my recent experience with the nvidia driver seems to indicate 
to me that it doesn't pay much attention to the modeline anyway (see my 
previously posted xorg.conf file).  Any of the modelines I've come up 
with, while they ought to be visibly different, result in exactly the 
same output to the TV.  I can see from Xorg.0.log that it says it is 
using each of them when I CTRL-ALT-+ to switch.  It is as if the drivers 
see that TVFormat is HD1080i and decides to use some default modeline, 
no matter what you specify in xorg.conf.  I may end up going back to the 
transcoder and trying that to get a less overscanned picture, although I 
had really hoped the direct component output would work better.
