Thanks Mitch.  Attached is a copy for my xorg.conf that isn't working.  This file started life as an xorg.conf.failsafe, then I modified it to support Component out.  I went back to an xorg.conf.failsafe to simplify my testing as much as possible.  I just went back to your ComponentOut page on the MythTV wiki and made it look a little more like what's in the wiki.  You can see in the Device section where I've commented what I added from the wiki.  Then, there's some stuff in the screen section.  I tried all three of the provided TVStandard sections, and tried one I added on my own, the 480i section.  All four of them give me no picture on the television.  

I've really about decided I just found a bug (or maybe just an incompatibility) between the nvidia driver and my Leadtek Winfast A6200.  I'm going to install Windows on it tomorrow night and make sure component out works under Windows.  After that I'm gonna reinstall Linux, because I don't have much use for Windows.  Any other suggestions for things to try under Windows while it's loaded appreciated.

The xorg.conf is attached,
