Interesting. OK, I'll do a little bit of experimenting tonight. However, 
I can't find a video_settings.xml on the machine that doesn't have the 
strings above. Both in /usr/share and in my .mythtv path. Hmm, wonder if 
it might be getting them from somewhere else. Anyway, I'll use the debug 
option to figure that out, and we'll go from there.
