Point taken RTFW ! Certainly applies to me. However, I want to point
out that the source of the wiki entry is the op 76GTA's post which in
turn was reprinted in the wiki. Either way, I missed it and fussed for
two days trying to get higher res than 800x600. If I missed it, I
though many others would also, so a quick reminder might be helpful.
BTW, the latest iteration of MythTV .22/Mythbuntu 9.10 is the BEST
ever. Totally awesome. Thanks a thousand times to you and your fellow
devs. I offer my gratitude and admiration of your technical skills
until you are better paid. Best wishes and Happy Holidays.
