Yes, the matroxtv script needs to be modified to use them... Or you
can just run fbset with them after using matroxtv script to setup the
dual head/tvout. Be sure to specify the right device /dev/fb0 or fb1
with -fb on the fbset command line. I think with the default dualhead
setup the script uses, it should be fb1, but you can experiment. I've
never used the script because it's for G400 (and +) cards with builtin
tv out and two crtc's, whereas I just switch a single output between
tv and monitor.
