Not sure what he means my "extended desktop", but didn't I read
somewhere that the latest nVidia drivers enable twinview by default? So
you might *not* have the same thing on both outputs unless you disable it?

Not sure, just seems like I read that somewhere, I'd use whatever nVidia
drivers came with MythDora, not the "new" ones, at least for starters.
