Robert, thank you so much! Swapping heads made quite a difference.
Both Watch TV and playback of recorded programs have both audio and video.
The monitor can be used (while the TV is showing video) for whatever other
work that needs to be done.
It will take a little getting used to, since the video plays on the monitor,
But the simple KDE key-combo of Ctrl+F2 switches to another desktop.
The KDE panel appears on the TV screen at all times (with MythTV menus or
video) but there must be a way to hide that permanently.
Anyway, again thanks for the help. I had just about given up on getting it
work, going back to using two different /etc/X11/xorg.conf files, swapping
when I wanted to work on the mythtv login. Now, I won't have to THAT
