Hi
I've done a lot of searching and have wound up at several dead ends, so I decided it's probably more expedient to just ask for help. I've got a fresh install of Mythbuntu 10.04 and am trying to hook it up to an old CRT TV in my house. It's a clunker from the 90's, maybe even 80's, who knows. The TV only has composite inputs, and I'm running a DVI to Composite adaptor out of my video card. The adaptor's made by Apple, like so http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9267G/A.

Here's the xorg.conf
