I found an "NVIDIA X Server Settings" utility, I hope that's it.  
Anyway, in there, I see alot of X-related information, like "X Screen 0" 
and "X Server Display Configuration", but I don't see any options to 
tell which output to use.  I do see that I have NVIDIA driver version 
1.0-9755, and I have CRT-0 (Samsung DLP) and TV-O (TV-O) defined, but I 
can't see how this utility defines/knows that SVIDEO is being used for 
TV Out.  If I examine my xorg.conf, I do see an option called 
"TVOutFormat" and that's set to "SVIDEO".  I guess my question is what 
do I have to set "TVOutFormat" to to get the DVI output to work as I want?

Sorry if I sound confused.  Thanks for the help.
