I'm curious. I have my nvidia card set to clone to the television but it only works when I have my resolution at 1024x768 or lower. Dual monitors refused to work with my setup for whatever reason. Normally I run at a resolution of 1280x1024 and just change the resolution when I want to run a movie. But I'm wondering if there is a way that I can create a small script that will change the screen resolution and launch the movie player with a single shortcut on my menu or desktop? Is there a good site I can go to to learn more about writing bash scripts? What command is being used to change the resolution when I'm in X? Any suggestions welcomed.
