Thanks, Craig.

It appears to be an ASUS M2NC51-AR motherboard and the video card is 
"integrated," which I assume must mean it is on the motherboard. (The 
machine is an HP slimline 3020n.) I'm having trouble finding detailed 
specs for this motherboard with any information about how I can expect 
tv-out to work, though.

As I mentioned in a previous post, there does not seem to be a DVI 
connector on the graphics card, so the option of switching my monitor to 
that doesn't seem to be available. :(

I guess I am suspecting that what you are warning about is in fact the 
case, but I probably should make some effort to try to get it working 
just in case it actually will support out to TV + monitor simultaneously 
-- since my other option is buying a new computer, right? I am dreading 
the xorg.conf hacking, though, so if anyone has insights about the ASUS 
M2NC51-AR motherboard, they would be welcomed.

You guys have been so helpful. I really appreciate it.
