Do you know if the nvidia-settings GUI can be run from a VNC session to the
front end box.  My current setup is front end and back ends.  I can't just
use ssh -X nvidia-settings remote.  I'd have to connect a local
keyboard and mouse.

I'd rather fix with the newest nvidia driver that apparently has the options
to fix over scan rather then adjusting pixels etc.. within MythTV
