[mythtv-users] Samsung DLP and X

I have a Samsung 42" DLP (4266W) with 2 HDMI and 1 VGA input. I'm using the
VGA connection at the moment and displaying the MythTV GUI with a funky
ModeLine "1232x693" 74.550 1232 1328 1464 1664 693 707 711 746 -hsync +vsync
I have xrandr enabled in MythTV so the resolution switches to a 720p
resolution (copied from MythTV wiki) on playback of all video:
ModeLine "ATSC-PC-720-60p" 74.16 1280 1320 1376 1648 720 722 728 750
I have a few strange issues running SVN r13228 (AtRPMS bleeding repo).
1) When mythfrontend starts up via Gnome Session, the applet dock is still
shown. If I quit and restart mythfrontend, it takes the entire screen.
2) When I exit from watching a DVD or recording, xrandr does not get run all
the time. The GUI will be shifted 50-100 pixels to the right showing a
black bar on the left. If I exit mythfrontend, run xrandr -s 0 and restart
mythfrontend, it's back to normal.
3) I've noticed that sometimes if I logout from X and log back in, the TV is
only displaying a portion of the window. For example, if I scroll the mouse
down to the bottom of the screen, I can keep moving down and the entire
Gnome session will move around. It's like I have a larger virtual
resolution in comparison to the real X resolution. When this larger virtual
resolution takes place, MythTV re-scales all the theme images and starts
inside the huge virtual resolution. What is causing this?
I've tried the various modes from the TV: Wide PC, Wide TV and 4:3. Wide PC
seems to give the best picture, but still experiences these strange issues.
Does anyone run a Samsung 720p DLP that could offer suggestions? Should I
buy the $15 DVI-HDMI cable from Monoprice.com and give it a whirl?
