Yes, I have it set for two separate displays. I send mythfrontend out to
the Svideo screen. It has worked well on v7676 for a long time and has
been working well for about 3 weeks on v8756 (after I found out that I
had to have the TV on for xorg to recognize the TV on the S-Video.
Unfortunately, I have the TV all the time and nothing appears.)
I'm wondering if I have a bad board.
