I use the TV out to drive a component projector (with the dongle) for my 
MythTV setup. For me, I either want the projector on (and the DFP off), or 
vice versa so I use XRandR to switch between them.  If you want both of them 
on at the same time, replace the NULL values in the metamodes option with the 
appropriate values.
