Thanks everyone for suggestions but I tried the Xorg log.0 file it was
not helpful this is partly why I gave up.

I have already specified UseEdidDpi false is that enough in the device section?

In my device section I have the line
Option      "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768"
Does this need changing/removing to match up with my ModeLine setting
- do the NVIDIA drivers look at ModeLines defined in the Monitors

Any further help would be appreciated as I can get it to work when I
use my the same hardware but Windows (so I know my ModeLine values are
correct as PowerStrip converts them for you) but can't get it to work
with MythTV/Linux system?
