Was working with xrandr the other day on my HP laptop trying to get
S-Video out and I thought, maybe we'll change the resolution on my
laptop's LCD screen to 800x600 and then clone it on the TV?
Here's a video showing what happens. I panic every time I do this (done
it many times and it still lives.)
1. working 1680x1050 display
2. randr resize to 800x500
3. quickly, in a panic, move to virtual console #2..
i thought I blew the CCFL backlight or something or Mr. Smith from the
Matrix was about to bust through the door.
