I spent several more hours than I suspect you having trying to get a
Flatscreen tv (which was really just a cheap, but large LCD monitor)
to work with Xorg. Xorg simply wouldn't accept the resolutions I was
trying, most due to the fact that the resolutions I wasn't telling it
to use didn't agree with what it thought it was getting via EDID. I
finally got something close (after buying a brand new video card
hoping it would better than the onboard one) and just settled for
