I have just completed building a separate mythbuntu backend server and frontend client based on Hardy 8.04. I would just like to say a huge thank you to all you developers who have put this amazing system togther – I just love it.
I don't think I need to give any details of the machines themselves except to say that the graphics card I am using on the client is based on the ATI 9550 GPU and comes with 256MB RAM. Eveything works perfectly when I have a standard monitor connected to the client but it is not so good connected to a 34” widescreen CRT (PAL-BG) using S-Video. I have reset the display to 800x600 but the desktop does not fill the screen and there is really bad geometric distortion. I might add that I hope to replace an Xbox running XBMC in this particular location and the image from the Xbox displays perfectly on this TV.
I have searched the forum to see if this has already been covered somwhere but couldn't find anything that exactly deals with these issues. If I have missed a thread I would welcome it being pointed out to me. Otherwise can anyone either point me to some comprehensive notes on this subject or help me through this forum.
