My nVidia GT710 (low end card) sees a single screen, currently a DELL
monitor, as 1680x1050; but IIRC when I had the TV HDMI connected too it
was (1680 + 1920)x 1080.
The monitor was at 1680x1050+0+0 and the mythfrontend window on that
screen was initially at 1024x576+64+64, fixed in size but moveable.
Running 'mythfrontend -nw --geometry 1920x1080+1680+0' gave a fullscreen
display on the TV.
Oviously, with this configuration, I'm not intending to try playing 4K
