    Dual Head Problems

    Hello! I have a dual head setup that was working perfectly in Mythbuntu 7.1 (the last one). I have a CRT on the analog, and a 52" TV on the digital output. The CRT was at 1024X768 and the TV was at HDTV (1920x1080) and they were 2 different desktops. I upgraded to 8.4 and now (after getting the video overlay to work) what happens is it comes up with a cloned desktop, to the login screen. The displays are at the proper resolution, but cloned, then when I login it seems that XFCE is taking aver and forcing them both to 1280x1024 and ignoring what is in xorg.conf. I can't seem to find the settings for this.
    Any ideas? My xorg.conf is below:

    # Created By Tteddo
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
