I believe I have found the answer to my second queston. It is to install the
Alsa-oss package. I am going to do a complete backup of my entire system
before I attempt this because I've found that in linux, you don't mess with
the sound. I have lost the sound in the past and had to start fresh again
because nobody on forums could find solutions. So after my backup, I'll try
this and then post back.

As for the first issue, I'm beginning to think I will just have to run
windows to do it because my 7300 doesn't seem to be able to output component
cables to my tv at a resolution I can select. It only wants to do 720x480 in
linux (or one of the other HD profiles like 720p or 1080i).
