Nvidia GeForce 440 S-video apex tv


Ok good news is I'm currently using the apextv as my monitor, which from reading other peoples post seems to be a feat in it's own for some, however, the edges of the screen seem to be slightly 'blured' or 'bent' which while watching tv doesn't occur. I'm not quite sure what I'm missing from my xorg file but I'm thinking that may be where the problem lies? Resolution is at 800x600 after reading up that it's important to stay with that res and not any higher.

I'm hoping to get this worked out as I got the t.v. in hopes of getting rid of my other t.v. and monitor to help save some space in the room it's in, any help would be doing a great deal for me.
