R5F27, fresh install over a year ago. If i remember correctly, it pretty much configured video for me very easily, which was great. However, now with a new tv, s-video looks like crap and I think straight vga 640x480 will be nicer, so I was attempting to switch things back over.

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Monitor0"
        Option  "DPMS"  "true"
        Option  "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
        Option  "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
        Option  "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        Option  "NoLogo" "1"
        Option  "TVOverScan" "0.8"
        Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
        Option "DPI" "100 x 100"
#       HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0 # Warning: This may fry very old Monitors
        HorizSync    30.0 - 50.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
        VertRefresh  60.0 # Very conservative. May flicker.


There is more, like the 'screen' section, but this is the key area. In the directory, there is an xorg.conf.1st file, but if I switch that file in (after backing the original up), I get the fatal IC7 wait 5 minutes error. VGA out is working fine during boot up, but as soon as mythfrontend is loaded, it goes dark and to tv out. Any advice?

That is because you are forcing the card to use TV out... I'd suggest you comment out anything relating to TV out...

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Monitor0"
        Option  "DPMS"  "true"
#        Option  "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
#      Option  "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
#    Option  "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        Option  "NoLogo" "1"
#        Option  "TVOverScan" "0.8"
        Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
        Option "DPI" "100 x 100"
#       HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0 # Warning: This may fry very old Monitors
        HorizSync    30.0 - 50.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
        VertRefresh  60.0 # Very conservative. May flicker.
You may also want to ensure the correct value for HorizSync and VertRefresh.

Much obliged, worked like a champ. Now to work on the resolution output. Thanks very much! Hopefully the keywords in the title will help others find this post as a comparison (I Searched the forums for an hour prior to posting like a good netizen).
