I have an Older HDTV RPTV.  It is a Toshiba 65H80.  I tried using the
component dongle with a nvidia 6600 graphics card without modelines but I
had too much overscan and the colors were really washed out.  I now have a
transcoder and someone on AVS was kind enough to send me the powerstrip
settings for this TV.  However I don't know how to use these settings to
create a 1080i modeline.  I know that their is a linux modeline generator
however I am not sure how to use that.  I have posted the settings they sent
me below for the powerstrip file.  Can someone please help?  I am running
Mythtv on knoppmyth using the RE50 release.
