Thanks Scott, but it used to work with both. Since yesterday, I got
desperate to get this box working, so I downloaded MythDora 4 and
started from scratch. It worked great! I had a couple of minor
hitches, but it really did a nice job. And guess what, both monitor and
TV work again!
I definitely missed some issues in xorg.conf and driver match-up, which
is probably where my original problem happened, but they have the right
combination for my setup. Kudos to the MythDora team :)
