Of course. What I want to know is what myth thinks my settings are. I 
know it calculates the frame rate and then uses that info to determine 
how to display the tv picture. My video source is 29.97 but I doubt my 
monitor is correctly set to that value as I had to create the modeline 
on my own and even by my math its off a bit. It would be real helpful to 
be able to make a change to the dot clock frequency and see that change 
in the frame rate myth calculates. This will let me precisely set the 
video out to be exactly on for NTSC video display.
