    Output to TV


    Well, I'm trying to get output to my TV dual monitoring. Using an All-In-Wonder and started up dual monitor and when I turned the TV on, it was all kinds of messed up. It was gray and things like that. How do I configure the second monitor to read it as a TV and get the proper resolution/color?

    If your colour was off it may be showing NTSC on a PAL tv, or vice versa. Check your xorg configuration - post back the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
